From Last Night:
- Harper homers in his return from the DL, Nats beat the Crew
- Fernandez goes 8 scoreless with 10 K to lead the Marlins over the Friars
- Matt Moore strikes out many Astros
What I’m Watching Today:
- Strasburg takes on the Brewers (7p Eastern)
- NERD darling Kluber looks to bounce back (8p Eastern)
- Price returns from the DL to face the Astros (8p Eastern)
- Kershaw battles Oswalt at Coors (830p Eastern)
The Big Question:
- What about the young pitchers?
So much attention is paid to the Trout, Harper, Machado…Puig(?) talk, but the game’s young starters are having some fun too. Obviously Harvey is getting the bulk of the attention because he’s ripping off a Cy Young season, but Shelby Miller and Jose Fernandez are now 17th and 18th in park adjusted FIP- in all of baseball and both have ERA’s below 3.00. These guys are having great seasons, and that doesn’t even include Patrick Corbin, all the way down at 21st.
