Governors’ Cup Rotation Announced

The Bulls rotation appears to be set and it looks just fine. The biggest difference is that Matt Buschmann is in line for Game 3 instead of Merrill Kelly. Given the amount of rest all of the starting staff will have had by then, expect Charlie and Neal Allen to be fairly quick with the hook.
  • Game One: Today!  Jake Odorizzi
  • Game Two: Tomorrow! J.D. Martin
  • Game Three: Thursday, Sep 13, Pawtucket. Matt Buschmann
  • Game Four (if needed): Friday, Sep 14. Merrill Kelly
  • Game Five (if needed): Saturday, Sep 14 (1:05). Mike Montgomery
Today’s starting pitcher for the PawSox is 23 year-old RHP Anthony Ranaudo who appeared in 6 regular season games after arriving from Boston's AA team. Big guy, 6’7“, 230. He only lasted two innings and gave up four runs against Rochester last Wednesday. Nevertheless, he has an ERA of just 2.96 over 140 innings this year; a decent WHIP of 1.136 on the season, and 137 Ks. [stats] At least he’s a righty which means Leslie Anderson has a shot at a big game/hit.

Note: Odorizzi season regular season stats (124 innings, AAA only. He had 23 with Rays): ERA-3.33, WHIP-1.134, 124 Ks.
