.130 BA (1st)
0.90 WHIP (3)
Last three games: 11 innings, 1 run
Last night….15 outs…..6 arms…..no Alexis Diaz
Ian Gibaut, Alex Young, Fernando Cruz, Reiver Sanmartin, Buck Farmer, Derek Law for his first save since 2019.
That pen is going to need some help, particularly from the No. 4 and 5 spots in the rotation. Connor Overton has to give them more than four innings. Luis Cessa isn't fully built up from the spring and will be challenged to get deep into games.
An effective bullpen is a well rested bullpen.
