Rich Harden is back

Postby markj11 » Thu Jun 30, 2011 8:59 am

RHP Rich Harden will come off the DL to start Friday's game against Arizona. Harden has been out since the first day of spring training with a muscle strain under his right arm. He allowed three hits, three runs and three walks in two rehab starts with Triple-A Sacramento, striking out 12 in 7 2/3 innings.


Anyone throwing him out there or waiting to see what happens?

I'll wait to see what happens ... but even if Harden threw a perfect game, I'd probably stay away! 8-o Been down the Harden Highway many times...

Really has nothing going for him: year of the pitcher, has the support of Oakland bats and is liable to injury if the wind blows a certain way. ;-7

I'm starting him with confidence. I expect a CG shut-out despite the 90 pitch limit.

I picked him up and stashed him after the first minor league start. He is throwing 94, appears to be "healthy", pitches in a terrible division, and has a great home park. If I even get 20 good innings from him I will be happy.

Needed a spot start, so I grabbed him amidst mediocre options. Even if he gets hurt, I didn't give up anything for him, so it seems like there isn't too much downside.

Yeah, with what Greinke, Lilly, Putz and now Peavy have done to my ratios this week, I have nothing to lose.
