Walt Weiss continues to mismanage the bullpen. Last night he brings in Jason Gurka for his major league debut in a 3-1 game in the seventh inning? The Pirates scored a run off him and the final score was 4-3. Today JDLR takes the ball for the Rockies in an attempt to finish the road trip with a 3-3 record.
Kyle Kendrick is starting one of the two doubleheader games Tuesday on the first day of expanded roster. It is part of WW’s possible plan to go to a six-man rotation. WW also continues to roll with Gopherg while he continuously walks guys. Thomas Kahnle has been sent back to Albuquerque to keep the bullpen doors revolving.
Down on the farm, Kyle Freeland and Jeff Hoffman bounced back from their previous horrible starts. Jose Tinoco and Antonio Senzatela continue to impress.
