Benching him until he proves that he is not Matt Moore's bad pitching twin brother.
But he'd better pitch well next time cause SEA and OAK is coming to town after that.
probable Matt Moore schedule:
04.26 vs LAA
05.01 vs SEA
05.06 vs OAK
05.12 @ BAL
05.17 vs BOS
05.22 vs TOR
05.28 vs CHW
06.03 vs BAL
That's some serious projection. I used to have a tool where I'd look five games out, but I'd never go that far.
To be honest, I'm surprised more people don't look that far forward when making decisions on picking up pitchers.
Even though that last 3-5 matchups there have about a 60% accuracy of happening, good solid work.
There are not too many days off.
If you want your top 4 pitchers working on 4 days rest than there nothing you can do until 05.25.
Right now the rotation is
and Niemann is the 5th starter, since he was already skipped.
Next time he can be skipped is 05.25 so Price will work on 4 days rest.
Than Moore will work on 05.27 (@ BOS) , and on 06.02 vs BAL
so it's nearly the same as the 'unadjusted' schedule.
But anything can happen.
Worst case, Moore can be sent down.
