Jake Arrieta in the news for showing some leadership and calling out his own team's superstar for being dumb.  To his credit, Harper owned his actions ...

 

https://www.philliesnation.com/2019/04/jake-arrieta-is-right-phillies-need-bryce-harper-on-the-field/

 

After the game, Phillies starting pitcher Jake Arrieta criticized Harper for getting tossed in such a crucial early-season contest and the rest of his team for not appearing to be mentally or emotionally ready for the game. As quoted by David Schoenfield at ESPN:

 

“We need him in right field. I don’t care how bad (the ump) is, I need him in right field, I need him at the plate and he wasn’t there. So that hurts. He missed some pitches but for both sides. If that’s the case, that happens on a nightly basis usually.”

 

“The umpire is going to miss some calls. So what? Next pitch. We’ve got a game to play. I’m not happy with the way we showed up today. We need to come out tomorrow ready to go.“

-Cashner scattered 5 hits and a single run across 7 IP in his last start against the White Sox on Tuesday, striking out 5 and picking up another W to improve to 4-1 on the year and lower his ERA to 4.18.  His next scheduled start is next Tuesday, also against the White Sox but on the road.

 

-Arrieta tallied 7 K's in 6 innings in his last start against the Mets on Monday, but also gave up 7 hits and 3 runs to take the L.  He's now 3-2 on the year with a 2.65 ERA, with his next start scheduled for Saturday evening against the Marlins.

 

-Carpenter has hit safely in 5 of his last 7 for the Cardinals, but his batting average is still just .209 for the year.

-Arrieta has given up a combined 8 earned runs across his last two starts.  Two L's drop him to 4-4 on the year with a 4.02 ERA.  Next start is Monday back in the formerly friendly confines against the Cubbies.

 

-Cashner has had two good starts in a row - 12 total IP, 12 total K, just 3 hits and just 3 BB...against the Red Sox & Yankees, no less.  But he got a no-decision and a loss.  He's now 4-2 with a 4.10 ERA, next start scheduled for Tuesday night against the Yankees in Bal'merr.

 

-Carpenter is 3-for-20 over the past week, which has dropped him down below the Mendoza Line

 

-Riley Ferrell has started his rehab assignment with the Marlins' Double-AA affiliate, the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp.  He had a perfect inning of relief with a strikeout in his debut.

If I could figure out where the hell my Cron cards are, I'd start off the card collecting thread with one of his.

A bit of a tangent, but Cron is not the only player making his debut in this weekend's Arizona/San Francisco series.  Also breaking into the bigs is Giants' outfielder Mike Yastrzemski.

 

Yes, he is Yaz's grandson.

Pretty cool. Craig Biggios son, Cavan Biggio made his debut as the starting 2B for the Blue Jays on Friday too. Blue jays are the first ever team to have start 2 sons of Hall of Famers in the same lineup (Vlad Jr ).

-Arrieta picked up a W in Milwaukee last night, striking out 8 and giving up 2 runs in 8 strong IP.  He improves to 5-4 on the year with a 3.60 ERA.  At the plate, he's 3-for-22 (.136) with an RBI.  His next scheduled start will be Friday night against the Dodgers at Chavez Ravine.

 

-Cashner picked up a W last night as well, in Denver.  He struck out 5 and gave up 5 earned runs in 5 IP to improve to 5-2 on the year while his ERA ticked up a bit to 4.55.  Being that it was in an NL park, he was in the lineup.  He went 0-3, but reached on a fielder's choice on a bunt and later scored.  His next start is at home against the Giants on Friday.

 

-Carpenter has 2 HR and 5 RBI has part of his current 3-game hit streak.  He's now hitting .222 with 7 HR, 17 RBI and a .724 OPS.

 

-Cron had a double and 2 RBI in his Major League debut for the Diamondbacks.

 

-Holaday went 0-3 in his season debut after being recalled by the Marlins.

 

-Ferrell is 4 games into his rehab stint in the Marlins' farm system, having given up 1 run in 4 appearances between Double-A Jacksonville and Triple-A New Orleans.

Cron's first three base hits for the D'Backs have been doubles, and Crichton's first two relief outings for them have been scoreless.

-Arrieta gave up 5 runs and 10 hits in 5 IP last time out, against the Dodgers in LA, to drop to 5-5 on the year.  His ERA ticked up to 3.96.  Next scheduled start is Wednesday afternoon against the Padres in San Diego.

 

-Cashner gave up 6 runs in 5 IP last time out...but got the W against the Giants.  He's now 6-2 on the year with a 5.04 ERA.  Next scheduled start is Thursday evening against the Rangers out at The Temple.

 

-Carpenter has a three-game hit streak going for the Cardinals, including a walk-off home run over the weekend against the Cubs.  He's hitting .220 for the year with 8 HR and 20 RBI.

 

-Holaday hit his first home run of the season over the weekend out in San Diego.  In 4 games since the Marlins called him up, he's 1-for-9 with that 2-run HR.

 

-Cron, who must be dizzy from the Diamondbacks' inability to make up their minds on him, is 4-for-14 (.286) in 9 big league games.  All four of those hits are doubles.

 

-Crichton is scoreless through his first 4 relief appearances for the D'Backs, with 3 K's, 1 hit and 0 BB across 2.2 total IP.
