his next start is at home on Tuesday against a weaker Toronto Blue Jays, who are now without Vernon Wells. is that a game one could consider picking up/starting Slowey?
over his brief career he has been better at home (3.82 ERA/1.12 WHIP) compared to on the road (6.03 ERA/1.58 WHIP)
next Tuesdays game is a night game which he is better in (3.48 ERA/1.07WHIP) compared to during the day (6.10 ERA/1.57 WHIP)
his rough career numbers against the Jays (7.20 ERA/ 2.00 WHIP) was largely because of his numbers against Wells (3/3, 1 HR, 3 RBI) ..where against other Jays he has only given up 1 hit each to McDonald, Lind, and Rios.
Slowey so far this season in the majors and minors has a problem with giving up HR's..
AAA- 5 IP, 2 HR
Twins- 8.3 IP, 3 HR
..maybe thats because he is often around the plate?
is he worth a pickup for the Toronto game? or even a standard 5x5 12 team league?
