Seems like a good kid but he’s not the answer to fill Big Pelf’s shoes. In Schwinden’s defense he’s drawn the 2 worst ballparks in baseball to pitch in, COL and HOU.
Thats a crappy deal for any young arm but Schwinden’s minor league stats don’t really give us much hope for improvement.
Does Collins give him another start? Probably. Because he deserves a chance at a fair ballpark and there’s no one else really pushing to come up.
Chris Young (remember him?) is rehabbing and currently throwing off a mound but he’s nowhere close to game ready.
Zack Wheeler is looking good at AA but they’re not rushing him or Matt Harvey before they’re ready.
Juerys Familia is at AA and striking dudes out left and right but his 5.4 ERA isn’t gonna get him that promotion.
What I’m worried about is this gaping hole in our rotation becoming the drain that sucks our season away. It’s gonna be hard enough to keep our heads above water this season w/o an overmatched kid in Pelf’s spot.
Getting swept outta Houston suddenly puts us on a very slippery slope. 1 more loss and we’re back at .500 …
