Trevor Richards has been placed on the IL with a neck strain.
Matt Gage reappears. Gage has been pretty decent, giving up just 2 hits and a walk with 3 strikeouts in 5 innings. Small sample and all. But having another lefty around isn’t a bad thing.
Richards has been having a tough time, giving up 12 runs in his last 8 innings. I don’t know how much of that can be alibied by the neck strain.
Our bullpen, as a whole, hasn’t been great. I don’t know how much of that is because we’ve been using the low-leverage guys a lot lately. I wonder if Pearson will be up at some point or if they are more interested in him being starting depth. It is a tough call.
Get healed up quick, Trevor.
