Can the bullpen get the job done?

Last night’s win was very satisfying, at least to me. It was just so nice to see John Means pitching like a boss.

Tonight will be a little different. Chris Ellis is having some arm fatigue, so Brandon Hyde has designated tonight a bullpen game. Conner Greene will be making the start but I don’t expect we’ll see him for longer than two innings. I expect we’ll also see Thomas Eshelman tonight. He was called up a few days ago and hasn’t made an appearance yet. He’s also capable of pitching multiple innings, though in his latest stint at Norfolk he was more of a one-inning guy.

Other than those guys, it’s anyone’s guess.

Over on offense, more injury news. Before the game tonight the Orioles placed DJ Stewart on the 60-day injured list due to some trouble with his knee. He’s been having trouble with it for awhile, so he’ll have a procedure in the off season to be ready for next year. See you in spring, DJ.

Cedric Mullins is back in the lineup tonight, and it’s Ryan Mountcastle’s turn to sit out because the National League is dumb and lets pitchers hit. Let’s see homer #30 tonight, Ced!
