Left-hander Max Fried, the Padres' No. 2 prospect, made his first start of the year with a full-season club Wednesday. He threw 3 2/3 innings in Class A Fort Wayne's 9-2 victory at Quad Cities.

Fried, ranked No. 35 among MLBPipeline.com's Top 100 Prospects, missed the first three months of the season due to forearm soreness. After a brief rehab assignment in the Arizona League, he was assigned to Fort Wayne this week.

Fried allowed one run on five hits and one walk. He struck out one batter and induced five groundouts.

Fried is familiar with Fort Wayne after pitching all of last year for the TinCaps. In 2013, his first full professional season, he went 6-7 with a 3.49 ERA and 100 strikeouts in 118 2/3 innings.

In Wednesday's victory, Fried was supported by third baseman Dustin Peterson and shortstop Trea Turner, both of whom had two hits. Peterson, the Padres' No. 15 prospect, went 2-for-4 with a home run and three RBIs. Turner, the Padres' first-round pick in the 2014 First-Year Player Draft, doubled twice and drove in two runs in his third game since being promoted from short-season Eugene.
