It’s a battle of the two starting pitchers in contention for the fifth rotation spot. I imagine the winner will get the final pre-season game, against the Guardians at Chase Field next Tuesday, then make his regular season start the first Monday in San Diego. It feels like there’s quite a lot on the line here, but on the other hand, it would not surprise me if the team has already made up its mind internally. The Dodgers game, which does appear to have more scheduled starting position players, is available both on Bankrupts Sports Arizona, and as a webcast through Mr. Burt will be along with a recap post- game. Or games. :)
