Rough game for Zachary before being sent down to AAA-Norfolk.

3 walks in only 5 innings, plus the fateful 3-run blast by Beltre, of which one of those walks scored on.

Something to think about for all those thinking he is better than Hammel.

Well that stinks. Someone tell me why Zach can be almost lights out for 4 innings in the majors but can't in the minors?

Guess I need a third option because I have no faith that Hammel is going to turn it around.

Well they do use a different ball.

Also groundball pitchers are more reliant on their defense.

I really think, as much as nobody probably wants to have to do it, that Britton would be served well out of the pen. A reliever who can get ground ball outs is always a beautiful thing.

Plus he can't get past 5, seems logical unless they want to package him.

Off the main topic here a little bit, but the size discrepancy between MILB & MLB balls is one of the most bizarre "why hasn't this been fixed yet" things still in baseball. These guys are in training for the MLB, why are they not using the same ball? At least put it in AA & AAA, the level most players are promoted from.

Sorry, that just really annoys me. l'll step off of the soapbox now! :)

Same thing with using metal bats in college/high school.
