I can't see him going more than 3 innings no matter how he is doing. If he's doing well, 3 innings. If not pitching well, could be pulled at any time. Just glad to see him back on the mound and getting some work.

For some reason i don't think we will need the bullpen to much this weekend. Maybe on sunday but arkansas offense nothing to be scared of. I'm predicting nola or eades having a complete game shutout against them pigs.

I would say something similar, maybe 1 less walk.
Seems like alot of posters have built the kid up to be our 2nd or 3rd best pitcher. I'd like to see it, but would be surprised if he is anything better than mediocre. He hasn't been good since his freshmen season.
