Roy Oswalt is back today. My expectation is that he’ll be a stream quality pitcher, but it might be worth picking him up and trying to sell him if he gets off to a hot start.
Matt Adams should start all three games against the Royals.
Alex Cobb against the Phillies looks like the headline start of the day.
Wei-Yin Chen, who I mentioned yesterday, is actually pitching tomorrow. Which is good because now you have an alternative to Cobb.
Hang on to Gentry against Josh Outman.
Hang on to Adams as well.
I rarely get to say this: nothing to report.
Vance Worley survived the Rockies lineup but still took the loss: 7 IP, 2 K, 2.57 ERA, 0.86 WHIP
Jacob Turner walked too many but didn’t suffer the consequences: 5 IP, 3 K, 1.80 ERA, 1.80 WHIP
John Mayberry Jr. went 2-for-4.
Scott Cousins flopped on his inaugural TDG appearance, going 0-for-4.
Alex Presley went 2-for-5 with one run and one stolen base.
Pedro Alvarez had a 2-for-4 evening with one home run, two runs, and one RBI.
