Edwin Jackson may get a call to start in place of Alvarez

I'd imagine they'd just have Falkenborg for the start. Looks like Alvarez could avoid the DL.

Or just start Lima on 3 days rest -- not like he's getting much of a workout 2nite :-°

They might as just not show up if Falkenborg starts. Last 2 appearences:

3.2IP 8H 8ER 3BB 1K
4IP 4H 3ER 3BB 5K

That's just brutal, might as well forfeit the game. I'd rather they give Edwin a shot, and for what it's worth 4 of his last 5 starts have been at least quality starts. Though his control has wavered on and off, which seems to be his only problem.

If you take out his one bad start of his last 5 games, here are his stats:
Last 4 out of 5 games - 23.1IP 19H 8ER 11BB 17K

While he still needs to work on his control, you can see he is pitching better.

Jackson is not doing that well at triple-A Las Vegas:

5-2, 5.13 ERA, 52.2 IP, 38K, 24 BB, 56 hits allowed, 1.57 WHIP.

Not exactly dominating. Replacing Alverez with Jackson at this point would not make any sense. I dunno...

Not doing well 8-o Those are horrible numbers. Even if they did bring him up I wouldn't touch him.

I think Jackson started out terrible in April, but has done better in May.

In April he was 3-1 with a 6.20 ERA. Don't have exact stats, but logically it means he was 2-1 with an ERA around 4.00 since then. Not outstanding, but much better.
