Andrew Massie (0-0, 23.14) gets the start in this one. I have a feeling the Kingsport rotation is going to be in constant flux this year…
Giancarlo Alvarado will become the 11th different starting pitcher for LasVegas this year. The Mexican League has many parks that favor the offensive in the same ways the PCL does, but Alvarado had also walked 19 in 38 IP, which will favor the offense in any league…
James Paxton faced the 51s twice in early June allowing 13 runs (10 ER) on 17 hits and 7 walks striking out 7 over 9.1 IP.
