YAY! Another Drabek start is here! His 3 starts were (and are) the three games that I was looking forward to the most to close out the season. I know his last start didn't go as perfectly as people would have hoped but he showed some real promise and the break and life on some of his pitches were excellent. This will be his second weak hitting team in a row to begin his big league career. Kind of a nice way to ease your way in.
I haven't read anything about being limited but I imagine the Jays will keep an eye on the pitch count for Drabek, I believe last time was set about 80 so in the interest of limiting his arm this year I imagine it might be about the same.
