Jordan Lyles got sent back down after his start, which was actually pretty good – 5 H, 1 HR, 2 walks, 5 K over 6 IP because Marwin Gonzalez is back. They can’t call him back up for the next time the #5 guy’s turn would roll around, which is May 8, so I would guess Paul Clemens will get called up, seeing as how Aneury Rodriguez is pitching lousy (only 3.2 innings in each of his last 2 starts) and Henry Sosa isn’t on the 40 man. But I have been surprised before…
Clemens right now has pitched 4 games, given up 1-2 runs/game, gone 5-6 innings/game.
Let’s hope Bud stops it with the gopher balls tonight and let’s hope that RA Dickey has one of his bad nights.
