Today's pitching starts are fronted by Minor League Ball's favorite homegrown talent, Matt Moore, all grown up and taking the hill against the revamped DET offense. How many of us will call up Moore from our minor league rosters if he dominates the game today?
Also taking the hill:
(MLB - Matt Moore!)
Meanwhile, hitters off to notable starts at AA:
Nick Franklin - still at SS, 1.2 OPS
Jean Segura: still at SS, .794 OPS
Manny Machado - Still at SS, 1.081 OPS, already two homers, I don't see the problem with A-Rod comps!
Matt Davidson - 1.095 OPS, 5/4 BB/K, .412 BA, nice to see him starting this way while now at 3B full time
Jeff Bianchi - SS, .976 OPS
Wong: 2B, 1.400+ OPS, 4/3 BB/K
Arenado: 3B, 1.215 OPS
Myers: .890 OPS, but a 1/8 BB/K ratio (I'm not too worried about this)
Robbie Grossman - Still in CF, .833 OPS
Aaron Hicks - .597 OPS
