Sources: [Trevor] Bauer to make MLB debut Thursday

WHO IS HE WORKING FOR????????

Oh.  Arizona.  Never mind.

Phenom Trevor Bauer will make his major league debut for the Diamondbacks on Thursday, sources with knowledge of the D-backs’ thinking said Sunday..

Bauer, 11-1 with a 2.23 ERA in 16 starts, leads minor league pitchers with 116 strikeouts after getting five Sunday… The D-backs need a starter in Atlanta on Thursday because Joe Saunders was placed on the disabled list with left shoulder inflammation on Saturday. Ian Kennedy would have been able to make that start on normal rest because of Monday’s off-day, but manager Kirk Gibson said in his press briefing Sunday that Kennedy will start Friday.

The fifth player taken in the 2011 draft, Bauer is 4-0 with a 2.82 ERA and 56 strikeouts in 44 2/3 innings at Reno. He was promoted to Reno on May 17 after going 7-1 with a 1.68 ERA and 60 strikeouts in 48 1/3 innings at Mobile… Bauer, 21, broke Mark Prior’s Pac-12 season strikeout record with 203 at UCLA last year, when he was 13-2 with a 1.25 ERA. He was 38-4 with a 2.36 ERA and 460 strikeouts in three seasons at UCLA, setting school records for victories and strikeouts.

Harvey, one thing I've heard is that he's a tinkerer, a guy who throws something on the order of 11 different pitches, and he does a lot of experimenting in the minors. I wonder if they'll limit that when he comes up and maybe that will translate into better walk totals.

Time to ditch one of my fantasy zeroes, and get with the hero.

Game of the day (6/23/11): Nationals 1, Mariners 0. Only 5 games on this day, the fewest of 2011 to date, so we have to "settle" for this one.

Washington's Jason Marquis worked a 1-2-3 first on three groundouts. Seattle's Michael Pineda allowed a one-out double to Jayson Werth. Werth then took third on a wild pitch, only to be thrown out trying to score on Ryan Zimmerman's flyout. Justin Smoak walked to lead off the top of the second and didn't advance; Dustin Ackley did the same in the fourth, but was erased when Smoak hit into a double play.

In the bottom of the fourth, Roger Bernadina led off with a double, and Werth walked behind him. One out later, Michael Morse singled to load the bases, but Pineda struck out both Danny Espinosa and Pudge Rodriguez to extinguish the rally. Both fifth innings went 1-2-3, and Marquis struck out the first batter in the sixth. That brought Pineda to the plate; naturally, he singled, breaking up the no-hitter. Ichiro singled as well, but a pair of groundouts ended the inning without any scoring.

Seattle mounted a nearly identical rally in the seventh, this one featuring a single and a walk that also put two on with one out, followed by a pair of outs to leave the runners at the corners. Washington also put two on in the bottom of the inning, thanks largely to an error by Smoak, and also stranded them. Marquis worked a perfect eighth, and Mariner reliever David Pauley (entering after Pineda was pulled for a pinch hitter who did less with the bat than Pineda himself earlier in the game) issued only a two-out walk in the bottom of the inning. The Nats put in Tyler Clippard to pitch the ninth; Smoak doubled with one out and was lifted for pinch runner Chone Figgins, but Clippard made the baserunner's speed irrelevant by striking out the next two hitters.

Chris Ray came in for the home half of the ninth, and quickly gave up singles to Morse and Espinosa, the second on a bunt. Brian Bixler pinch ran for Morse at this point, which was probably for the best, because Pudge laid down a sac bunt, the Mariners went for the lead runner, and they didn't get him, loading the bases with nobody out. Jerry Hairston grounded into a force at home for the first out, but Laynce Nix lifted a flyball of sufficient depth to bring home Espinosa with the game-winning run.

Walkoffs are good. Runners left in scoring position throughout the day are good. But the best part of this game is something my system doesn't pick up - a prospective no-hitter being broken up by the opposing pitcher. This seems like the kind of thing that could only happen to Jason Marquis, but I'll guess it actually happens more often than one might expect.

Well that was in the wrong thread. And editing is not working.
