Schlitter’s MLB Debut

June 28, 2010

Brian Schlitter made his MLB debut in the 7th inning of today’s game against the Pirates as John Grabow came out mid-batter with a leg injury.  He struck out the batter Grabow started and the next batter as well.  That’s as long as Schlitter’s impressive debut went, as Cashner came in to pitch a scoreless 8th, and that is where we stand now.  1-1 tie with the Cubs coming up in the 8th.  Schlitter was called up following the first game of the Cubs @ Sox series, sending down Jeff Stevens, as a result of Carlos Zambrano’s suspension and the need for a fresh bullpen arm.
