In his last two AAA starts, Jake Arrieta has compiled 10 1/3 innings, given up 19 hits, 15 earned runs, and only struck out three people. He had no business being in the majors, let alone starting in the majors. He should not have one appearance in the majors in 2013 if not for our pathetic pitching depth. As for today, it looks bleak as well. I've read Zach Britton
has thrown the ball well his last couple starts, but I'm skeptical. Anybody could toss a few good innings in a row in AAA. We've seen pitchers dominate for awhile in AAA and get shelled. I know the ERA looks good, but lets keep in mind that Britton has an ugly 1.459 WHIP & an ugly 1.91 SO/BB. Plus, he is up against one of the best offenses in baseball, and one of the best pitchers in baseball. Chalk up an L. Prove me wrong Zach.
