Cardinals pitcher Miles Mikolas was removed from the National League’s active roster for the All-Star Game next Tuesday because he is scheduled to start Sunday for St. Louis against the Cincinnati Reds.
Los Angeles Dodgers right-hander Ross Stripling was added to the NL pitching staff Wednesday as Mikolas’ replacement.
Mikolas is 10-3 with a 2.65 ERA and was selected to his first All-Star team last weekend. The 29-year-old right-hander is enjoying a resurgent season in the majors following three years in Japan.
Rockies: RHP Bryan Shaw was activated from the 10-day DL and LHP Jerry Vasto optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque. Shaw pitched a scoreless ninth inning in his first appearance since June 23rd.
The Diamondbacks made history by pitching Descalso and Avila tossing multiple innings. The last time it http://www.avalanchehockeyshop.com/adidas-joe-colborne-jersey happened was when the Philadelphia Phillies did it against the Chicago Cubs on July 22, 1945, according to Elias Sports Bureau.
In addition, Descalso coming on in the fourth inning was the earliest a position player pitched in a game since Sal Bando did it for Milwaukee on Aug. 29, 1979, according to Elias.
But a deeper dive into the numbers gives the Marlins hope as it pertains to Friday’s opener of a three-game series.
For starters, while the Marlins rested Thursday, the Phillies had to play at the New York Mets on Wednesday and then at the Baltimore Orioles on Thursday. The Phillies beat the Orioles 5-4, but they still figure to be a road-weary team on Friday when they play in their third city in three nights.
Also, while Chen has been truly awful on the road this year with a 10.47 ERA that is the worst in the majors, he has been remarkably good at home. His home ERA of 1.89 is the ninth best in the majors this year among pitchers with at least 30 innings in their own stadiums.
Further, while Arrieta has http://www.officialsfalconsauthenticshop.com/Justin_Bethel_Jersey_Cheap been solid overall this season with a 6-6 record and a 3.47 ERA, he has struggled in two starts against the Marlins. His numbers against the Marlins read like this: 7 2/3 innings, 9.39 ERA.
From a team standpoint, the Marlins are coming off a series in which they took two of three games from the Milwaukee Brewers, Womens Joe Colborne Jersey who have the best record in the NL.
Moreover, the Marlins — since April 23 Justin Bethel Womens Jersey — are much improved with a 34-40 record during that span, roughly half a season in which they have played close to .500 ball. And while that may not be overly impressive, it paints this young Marlins team as something other than the disaster they were supposed to be when the front office engineered yet another sell-off this past offseason.
