From our AAA team last night;
AAA: Norfolk 6, Louisville 3
–2B Chris Valaika was 2-4 with a two-run homer, his second of the year. CF Brent Clevlen had two hits. Devin Mesoraco doubled.
–Aroldis Chapman pitched a perfect inning, throwing eight pitches, of which six were strikes. Mike Leake followed up with 2 poor innings, giving up three runs on four hits, raising his ERA to 9.82.
Jeremy Horst took the loss with a rare less-than-stellar performance. He went 4.2 innings, giving up three runs (two earned) on two hits and two walks. He did strike out six. For what it’s worth, Horst has a future on the major league level.
So we are still using Chapman in a bullpen role? Really? We are going to continue to misuse this kid?
so you start chapman, have him pitch one inning then bring in your starter? Really how often does that occur in the major leagues/
So now we are throwing our bullpen lefties 4+ innings? Your lefty specialist is now your long guy? This organization just baffles me....
