Groin Strain Update

Tony Armas made the last of his scheduled rehab starts for New Orleans yesterday. Based on performance to date, it probably won't be the last.

He went five innings, gave up six runs and 'scattered' nine hits. (That looks mysteriously like Tomo Ohka's typical line!)

It's looking increasingly likely that Jon Rauch is going to get his chance to supplant Ohka or Zach "Puberty Boy" Day in the rotation.


  • On the plus side Armas only walked one and 'kayed seven. He did give up two bombs. Run those DIPS calcs, baybee~!

  • If you take a look at the gamelog, the one BB was intentional. Also, it appeared that Armas had some issue getting Mike Coolbaugh out (2 two run HRs).

  • I always take those numbers with a grain of salt too, because the pitcher and hitters are trying for two different goals.

    Armas isn't as worried about getting the batters out -- he's focusing on delivering his pitches, working on command, building arm strength, etc.

    And the batters are excited about whacking the hell out of the major leaguer to prove that they belong.

  • What's your guess? Are we one more bad Day outing outing away from a Livan, Patterson, Loaiza, Armas, and Rauch rotation?

  • If Armas is ready, it might not even take another bad Day outing.

    Good point. Clearly, the more important question is whether the tweak has been, uh, adjusted.
