****Rookie starters today:
The Braves Touki Toussaint fared well against the Marlins Pablo Lopez.
Solid debut from Touki Toussaint. The final line is pretty itself:— Wayne Cavadi (@UofDWayne) August 13, 2018
6 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 2 BB, 4 K but the biggest takeaway is 52 of his 83 pitches were for strikes.
If Touki is landing 63% of his pitches for strikes, he is a dangerous weapon. #ChopOn
Merandy Gonzalez (Marlins) makes his first big league start in the nightcap of the double header in Atlanta. Artie Lewicki throws for the Tigers. Sean Reid-Foley makes his big league debut for the Toronto Blue Jays against the Royals Brad Keller.
I’m excited about the debut of SRF. Such an intriguing prospect with some nice stuff in his arsenal, but struggles with the consistencies of controlling it. Kind of like Toussaint, and we saw how that went. What are you watching today?
