The Reds got five shutout innings out of Tyler Mahle on Thursday night in a win over the Dodgers, their third consecutive win.
Things get even more exciting on Friday night, when Matt Harvey starts for the first time in a Cincinnati uniform after finally getting the boot from New York.
Harvey will be on a pitch count that hasn’t been made public. It seems likely that the Reds’ bullpen will get heavy work, though.
Homer Bailey is 0–5 and it could be worse. His ERA isn’t nearly as bad as his FIP, which is sky-high as a result of giving up almost 2.5 home runs per nine innings.
Los Angeles Dodgers
In April, people were watching how far the Dodgers could fall, like a stock that was sure to bounce back.
Now, people are ruling LA out and I’m not sure that it’s appropriate yet. Sure, the Dodgers have a bunch of injuries but there is still not other team better equipped to overcome a slew of injuries.
Guys like Ross Stripling now the have the opportunity to step into big roles and prove their worth as everyday players.
Most of Stripling’s work has come out of the ‘pen but it has been fantastic. Between 11 relief appearances and two starts, he has a 200 ERA+ and with Clayton Kershaw’s uncertain future, he is sure to be a fixture in the rotation for a while now.
He’s gone just four innings in each of his two starts this season. A rested Dodger bullpen will help things for Saturday.
