Sep. 28 8:46 AM PT9:46 AM MT10:46 AM CT11:46 AM ET11:46 ET15:46 GMT23:46 8:46 AM MST10:46 AM EST11:16 AM VEN19:46 UAE10:46 AM CT-Sean Newcomb fell to 4-9, allowing three runs on four hits and four walks in 5.0 innings, as the Atlanta Braves lost to the New York Mets 7-1 on Wednesday. Newcomb struck out seven, ending the game with a 4.32 ERA and 1.57 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: The rookie didn't eat up a ton of innings following his call-up in mid-June, but Newcomb became a regular in the rotation and showed he could be a part of it for a long time to come. He allowed no more than three earned runs in 15 of his 19 starts and struck out 108 batters in 100 innings.
Sep. 23 9:26 AM PT10:26 AM MT11:26 AM CT12:26 PM ET12:26 ET16:26 GMT0:26 9:26 AM MST11:26 AM EST11:56 AM VEN20:26 UAE11:26 AM CT-Sean Newcomb improved to 4-8, allowing two runs on four hits and two walks in 5.1 innings, as the Atlanta Braves defeated the Philadelphia Phillies 7-2 on Friday. Newcomb struck out five, ending the game with a 4.26 ERA and 1.57 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: The rookie isn't eating up a lot of innings but is a fantasy option because he's been striking out plenty of batters - 25 over 20 2/3 innings in his last four starts. He has a 3.92 ERA in that span.
Sep. 16 9:51 PM PT10:51 PM MT11:51 PM CT12:51 AM ET0:51 ET4:51 GMT12:51 9:51 PM MST11:51 PM EST12:21 AM VEN8:51 UAE11:51 PM CT-Sean Newcomb improved to 3-8, allowing two runs on six hits and one walk in 5.1 innings, as the Atlanta Braves defeated the New York Mets 3-2 on Friday. Newcomb struck out eight, ending the game with a 4.32 ERA and 1.59 WHIP on the season.
Sep. 8 12:22 AM PT1:22 AM MT2:22 AM CT3:22 AM ET3:22 ET7:22 GMT15:22 12:22 AM MST2:22 AM EST2:52 AM VEN11:22 UAE2:22 AM CT-Sean Newcomb allowed three runs on seven hits and three walks in 5.0 innings as the Atlanta Braves defeated the Miami Marlins 6-5 on Thursday. Newcomb struck out five, ending the game with a 4.38 ERA and 1.61 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: A typical outing for the rookie, who hasn't gone past five innings in any of his past four starts and continues to pile up both walks and strikeouts. Newcombe has fanned 53 in 47 1/3 innings over his last nine assignments, but has issued 33 free passes during that stretch.
Sep. 1 1:09 AM PT2:09 AM MT3:09 AM CT4:09 AM ET4:09 ET8:09 GMT16:09 1:09 AM MST3:09 AM EST3:39 AM VEN12:09 UAE3:09 AM CT-Sean Newcomb fell to 2-8, allowing three runs - two earned - on eight hits and three walks in 5.0 innings, as the Atlanta Braves lost to the Chicago Cubs 6-2 on Thursday. Newcomb struck out seven, ending the game with a 4.31 ERA and 1.59 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: The rookie has been an asset in the strikeout category, notching 35 Ks in 31 1/3 innings over his last six starts. Newcome is 1-3 during that stretch, however, and his 1.79 WHIP over that period suggests there may not be many wins to come by in September either.
Aug. 27 12:14 AM PT1:14 AM MT2:14 AM CT3:14 AM ET3:14 ET7:14 GMT15:14 12:14 AM MST2:14 AM EST2:44 AM VEN11:14 UAE2:14 AM CT-Sean Newcomb allowed four runs on seven hits and two walks in 4.2 innings as the Atlanta Braves lost to the Colorado Rockies 7-6 on Saturday. Newcomb struck out five, ending the game with a 4.36 ERA and 1.55 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Newcomb entered Saturday's contest having posted three straight quality starts and threw five shutout innings against Cincinnati in his most recent, but labored through 94 pitches while getting an early hook in this one. Walks continue to be an issue for the 24-year-old, who's now permitted 44 free passes in 74 1/3 innings.

Newcomb struck out two, ending the game with a 4.13 ERA and 1.52 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Newcomb, who won for the first time since June 27, has a 3.04 ERA in his last five starts. He next takes the ball Saturday against the Rockies.

Newcomb struck out six, ending the game with a 4.45 ERA and 1.48 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: The rookie issued only one walk, a sign of progress after seven walks in a loss to the Dodgers in his last start and at least three in five straight starts. ''Real encouraging,'' manager Brian Snitker said. ''I like the fact they went to work and made improvement over the last start.''
Aug. 4 9:04 PM PT10:04 PM MT11:04 PM CT12:04 AM ET0:04 ET4:04 GMT12:04 9:04 PM MST11:04 PM EST11:34 PM VEN8:04 UAE11:04 PM CT-Newcomb fell to 1-6, allowing three runs on four hits and seven walks in 4.2 innings, as the Atlanta Braves lost to the Los Angeles Dodgers 7-4 on Thursday.

Newcomb struck out nine, ending the game with a 4.81 ERA and 1.51 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: The well-regarded prospect set a career high for strikeouts but once again had an issue with walks. Newcombe has doled out 14 free passes over 18 2/3 innings during a four-start stretch in which he's 0-3 with a troubling 9.16 ERA.
July 19 10:41 PM PT11:41 PM MT12:41 AM CT1:41 AM ET1:41 ET5:41 GMT13:41 10:41 PM MST12:41 AM EST1:11 AM VEN9:41 UAE12:41 AM CT-Newcomb fell to 1-5, allowing five runs on eight hits and three walks in 5.1 innings, as the Atlanta Braves lost to the Chicago Cubs 5-1 on Tuesday.

Analysis: Newcomb had allowed only four earned runs over his first four major league starts before meeting the cold, harsh reality of the majors' best offense.
June 28 9:35 AM PT10:35 AM MT11:35 AM CT12:35 PM ET12:35 ET16:35 GMT0:35 9:35 AM MST11:35 AM EST12:05 PM VEN20:35 UAE11:35 AM CT-Sean Newcomb improved to 1-2, allowing six hits and one walk over 6.0 scoreless innings, as the Atlanta Braves defeated the San Diego Padres 3-0 on Tuesday. Newcomb struck out eight, ending the game with a 1.48 ERA and 1.07 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: The 24-year-old earned his first major league win in his fourth major league start. He's been impressive in all of them, pitching at least six innings each time while allowing a combined four earned runs. "The difference is I am competing on every single pitch," the former first-round pick said. He's certainly impressing teammates, including Ender Inciarte, who said, "Watching from center field, it looks nasty, his curveball and fastball. He has been really sharp."
June 22 9:32 PM PT10:32 PM MT11:32 PM CT12:32 AM ET0:32 ET4:32 GMT12:32 9:32 PM MST11:32 PM EST12:02 AM VEN8:32 UAE11:32 PM CT-Newcomb allowed one run on three hits and one walk in 6.0 innings as the Atlanta Braves defeated the San Francisco Giants 5-3 on Wednesday.

Newcomb struck out three, ending the game with a 2.19 ERA and 1.22 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Newcomb allowed just one unearned run over 6 1/3 innings in his major league debut last week, so this was a step back. ''He set the bar pretty high in the first (start last week), and I thought it was pretty good again,'' Braves manager Brian Snitker said. ''This is a hot team. They've been playing good and scoring a lot of runs.''
June 10 2:01 PM PT3:01 PM MT4:01 PM CT5:01 PM ET17:01 ET21:01 GMT5:01 2:01 PM MST4:01 PM EST4:31 PM VEN1:01 UAE (+1)4:01 PM CT-Newcomb lost in his major league debut despite allowing just one unearned run and four hits in 6.1 innings, as the Braves lost to the Mets 6-1 on Saturday in the first game of a doubleheader.
