Matt Boyd returns to Toronto, and takes on his former team, as does Anthony Gose. David Price is there, and not doubt will be renewing acquaintances, but we won’t see him pitching this series.
Justin Verlander’s near no-hitter was a tough act to follow, but crafty veteran Randy Wolf did a pretty good job of it. He has now had two good outings, which is probably as much or more than the team expected to get from him this season. Wolf now has a WHIP of 1.143, which is the 2nd lowest among Tiger starters (Verlander now, by the way, has a lower WHIP for the season than David Price did). Wolf says he isn’t yet ready to concede to age.
If Miguel Cabrera gets 5 plate appearances tonight, he will appear in the official batting average leaders list.
In Minor League notes, current Erie pitcher (and former Binghamton pitcher) Michael Fulmer has been named Eastern League Pitcher of the Year. Some hope for the future.
