Should be his last day. He went on the paternity list June 16. I think that is just three days. So he should be back tomorrow.

Our 3 big lefties need to show up the next two days....Votto and Winker don’t mind hitting to the opposite field so that’s promising.....coming off a win my glass is always half full

sorry for the nitpicking, but since it’s the second day in a row it’s been in the OP, the Astros are in the AL West.

Is there a thread on the paternity leave thing? I might be old school but I just don't see it. Show up and play. It's not like it's a 14-hour a day job. I googled this and saw where he did this with the Tigers in 2017 too.

"Astros" makes perfect sense for the club, especially considering the name change took place in the mid-60's during the height of the Space Race, combined with the importance of Houston in the United States space program.

I once got fired for taking a Sunday off to get married.. God only knows what they might have done had my then wife gave birth instead.. Send a bomb to my house? Who knows? The hell of it is they knew about it weeks ahead of time and still fired me. Needless to say I never missed that job. They folded and were forced into bankruptcy..

DeSclafani has looked good his last two starts, he allowed 1 run on 4 hits and 2 walks over 5.2 innings on Wednesday against the Indians. Keeping the ball in the park his last 2 starts Disco has only given up 3 runs in his last 10.2 innings (2.53 ERA)

Itís a new world. My daughter had a baby recently and her husband got 3 months paternity leave. Seeing how much he was involved and seeing the load it took off my daughter, I only have positive things to say about it. I wish I had gotten to do it.

Only 76 pitches so far for DeSclafani.

6 innings is a distinct possibility. Seven is possible.

BTW, Disco now has a 4.11 ERA.

Were the game to stop right now, he'd rank with Patrick Corbin right ahead of Mike Leake.

Slightly ahead of the halfway mark for the 150 starters with the most innings.

He hasn’t pitched much since like, 2016. I wouldn’t be totally shocked if he’s still working through some things, or hasn’t fully recovered from all the injuries he’s had. I’m still somewhat of a believer in Disco, I don’t think the promise he showed in his first couple years as a Red was a fluke.

He hasnít pitched much since like, 2016. I wouldnít be totally shocked if heís still working through some things, or hasnít fully recovered from all the injuries heís had. Iím still somewhat of a believer in Disco, I donít think the promise he showed in his first couple years as a Red was a fluke.
I don't think it was a fluke but I just worry that he's never going to be able to get a handle on the HR issue outside of playing in a more expansive ballpark. His BB and K rates are great, but he's always walking a tight rope with how many fly balls (that turn in long balls) he allows.

Defensive metrics still arenít being too kind to him. Doesnít really match up with what Iím seeing myself, but itís worth keeping an eye on. Of course heís also been playing it for like 2-3 months at this point.

Has there been a single ball he hasnít gotten to that anyone thought he should have?
