Tyler Mahle and his sparkling 2.45 Cactus League ERA will take the mound on Tuesday night for the Cincinnati Reds, as the club heads over to Peoria to take on the San Diego Padres. They’ll be up against talented young righty Dinelson Lamet under the lights, though since it’s a night game that’s not televised anywhere it’s a bit of a bummer that we won’t be able to see it all play out.
Mahle’s set to be backed by the likes of Zack Weiss, Tanner Rainey, Wandy Peralta, and Kevin Quackenbush, among others listed as available on the team’s travel roster.
If you’re awake and interested, you’ll be able to follow along ear-wise on 700 WLW.
- Michael Lorenzen is hurt. Again. This time, it’s his teres major muscle, which attaches the the scapula to the humerus and is one of seven scapulohumeral muscles. I have absolutely zero idea what that means, but I do know that’s the same muscle that Brandon Finnegan had flare up last year. According to The Athletic’s C. Trent Rosecrans, it’s not as serious as Finnegan’s, but this will likely end any chance of Lorenzen earning a spot in the team’s starting rotation. Well, farts.
- Stop getting hurt, pitchers. This is getting ridiculous.
- Luis Castillo and Brandon Finnegan both pitched in minor league games earlier today, Castillo particularly had an excellent outing: 5 IP, 4 H, ER, BB, 5 K. Finnegan got through 2 IP, allowing 2 H, ER, BB, with 2 K.
