General Discussion – Week of 6-23-2014 – Sixth Starter Edition

The Marlins comes to town tonight for four in a row at 7:05, and the Braves are in on Friday for a four-gamer that includes a day/night double header on Saturday (2:05pm and 7:15pm start times). Seems as though they have Brad Lincoln lined up to pitch that day if they want. I would assume that Lincoln not being the guy means it’s Sean O’Sullivan on an extra day of rest. Greg Smith is set to throw Wednesday, so he’d be way off turn if they held him out until Saturday.

There is no one on the full 40-man roster right now who would make sense as the starter, so anyone will need a roster spot. Who goes? Jon Pettibone to the 60-day DL seems easiest, as he has had or is about to have exploratory shoulder surgery, which would put him well off of a return.
