Open thread, 6/9, Braves vs. Kevin Malones
Last night Kris Medlen made an enviable decision even tougher, pitching beautifully for the second start in a row. Are you going to move him to the bullpen?
It’s got to be Beachy. And maybe that’s what the Braves are thinking. Just because they’ve announced he’ll start in the doubleheader against the Mets doesn’t mean he’s back in the rotation. If Beachy was unavailable then I assume Sean Gilmartin or someone like him would be called up for the game.
Rookie right-hander Matt Magill, who walked 9 and allowed 4 HRs in his last start, toils for the Dodgers today. Hopefully that means Fan Uggla sits (don’t expect me to be impressed by his homer last night off a hanging curve). Line-ups haven’t been posted yet, so we’ll see.
