Mike Bolsinger (0-1, 6.23) vs. Daniel Wright (0-0, -.--).
Mike Bolsinger may have found positives in his last start, his season debut, but I think the noteworthy thing from his last start was that the Angels found their way with Bolsinger, who yielded seven hits and three earned runs in a short 4.1 inning stint. Which the Dodgers lost, 8-1.
Luckily for the Dodgers, the second-worst team in the NL happens to also be sending an unproven lamb into the slaughter (if the Dodgers' woeful offense had a shred of potency), with Daniel Wright from AAA-Louisville making his major league debut tonight. Wright, a 10th round draft choice in 2013 from Arkansas State, , had his worst season last year in double-A ball:
The 2015 season, spent in Double-A, was by most measures his worst, and it wasn’t even that bad. He struck out a career-low 7.5 batters per nine innings and walked just 2.7 per nine.
So, to recap: We're throwing a soft tosser. The Reds are throwing someone who isn't that bad. Sounds like a hell of a night at the Stadium this evening. Take a chance, and win some crap!
