We have an early game today, 3:00 Eastern time.
There is a roster move before the game:
- Trevor Richards has been put on the IL with neck inflammation.
- Bowden Francis has been recalled.
That is not good news; Richards has been important to our bullpen. Chad Green should be back soon, but he’s not likely to be able to go more than an inning at a go.
Francis has been up and down a bunch. He’s pitched 15.2 innings and has a 2.30 ERA with 12 hits, 3 home runs, 4 walks and 14 strikeouts.

Sean Barber had a very good day yesterday. He just missed three calls, all strikes that were called balls. One of them made life much tougher for Jordan Hicks.
