MARINERS PROBABLE:
        REDS PROBABLE:
Miguel Batista (7-6, 4.99)        Bronson Arroyo (2-8, 5.24)

Bronson hasn't pitched since a week ago today, making this his longest rest of the season. Here are Bronson's career numbers on 4, 5 and 6+ days' rest:

D    IP     BB     H   WHIP    ERA   K/9
4   431    140   425   1.31   4.26  5.97
5   267     73   285   1.34   4.35  5.66
6+  138     49   152   1.46   4.49  6.85

Not terribly inspiring, but most of those 6+ days' rest performances probably came when he was a reliever with Pittsburgh. Also, he's maybe never been as worn out as he is now. I would have preferred an entire skipped start, but we got two extra days. That's something.

Right it, Bronson. Go Reds.

Update [2007-6-24 16:3:44 by boobs]: Hopper is out, which slides Valentin into the DH slot and sends Junior out to the field. No clue why.
