Newcomb allowed five runs on 12 hits and two walks across four innings Sunday in a no-decision against the Brewers. He struck out two.

EDGE Analysis

Newcomb was knocked around early and often, easily surpassing his season high in hits allowed in this abbreviated outing. Despite the steady stream of baserunners, all the runs against Newcomb came on two base hits -- a two-run single from opposing pitcher Chase Anderson and a three-run home run from Jesus Aguilar. Luckily, the offense picked the struggling left-hander up in this one and got him off the books for a loss. Newcomb had allowed just three earned runs over 20.2 combined innings in his previous three starts and will look to bounce back this weekend against the Rockies.

Newcomb will start the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Nationals, David O'Brien of The Athletic Atlanta reports.

EDGE Analysis

Newcomb received some additional rest between starts following the promotion of Kolby Allard and the acquisition of Kevin Gausman from the Orioles before the trade deadline, resulting in no starts during the week. He will return to the bump Tuesday, looking to build off of a successful pair of starts against the Dodgers and Marlins in his last two turns.

Newcomb is slated to make his next start for the Braves during one half of Tuesday's doubleheader with the Nationals, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Braves' recent additions of prospect Kolby Allard and trade-deadline pickup Kevin Gausman to the rotation resulted in Newcomb getting pushed back in the schedule and missing out on a start this week. Even if the club hadn't promoted Allard or acquired Gausman, the Braves likely would have found some way to give Newcomb more than his usual rest between starts after the 25-year-old lefty tossed a career-high 134 pitches while falling one out shy of a no-hitter Sunday against the Dodgers. He'll return to the mound next week on eight days' rest, aiming to build on perhaps the best performance of his young career.

Newcomb (10-5) allowed one run on one hit and one walk across 8.2 innings Sunday to earn the win against the Dodgers. He struck out eight.

EDGE Analysis

Newcomb dominated a formidable opponent and carried a no-hitter into the ninth inning, only to see it broken up by a single from Chris Taylor. He was then removed with a whopping 134 pitches under his belt and watched as the bullpen allowed his inherited runner to score. Despite a bit of disappointment considering what could have been, it was an excellent outing for Newcomb, who now has a shiny 3.23 ERA and a 1.20 WHIP for the season. He's currently slated to face the Mets next weekend, but it remains to be seen if the club elects to give him an extra day or two of rest after this taxing outing.

Newcomb will start Monday against the Marlins after his start Saturday against the Nationals was postponed due to inclement weather.

EDGE Analysis

Mike Foltynewicz will keep his scheduled Sunday start, with Newcomb slotting in behind him in Miami. It's a positive development for Newcomb's fantasy owners, as he'll end up facing one of the weakest offenses in the league. Further changes are still possible, however, as weather could threaten Sunday's game as well.

Newcomb (8-4) allowed five earned runs on five hits and four walks while striking out three across 3.2 innings to take the loss Sunday against the Brewers.

EDGE Analysis

Newcomb suffered a short outing for his second consecutive start, with his struggles finding the plate again being the main culprit for his poor effort. He found the plate on only 44 of his 82 pitches and began 13 of the 20 batters he faced with a ball. He will look to bounce back in a more friendly -- albeit still tough -- matchup against the Diamondbacks on Saturday.
