7/8 Pitchers vs Hitters Matchups – Going for the Sweep in KC

 

First pitch at 2:15 ET!

With Christian Vazquez going on the disabled list, William Cuevas is being recalled from Triple A Pawtucket. After the bullpen worked 4.1 innings last night it’s a good move to make. Brian Johnson suddenly joins Vazquez on the DL as well. Johnson, just a day ago, was penned for more starts, as Wright and Pomeranz both need more time. Ryan Brasier gets the call up from Pawtucket to take his place. The newly named International League All-Star has had 13 saves in 14 tries.

This is actually Brasier’s first time in the majors since way back in 2013 with the Angels. In 7 appearances he allowed 2 ER in 9 innings, walking 4 and striking out 7 batters.
