Sam Long 2021 Outlook

Recommended Posts

Impressive outing for Sammy. Next up is a home game against Oakland next weekend. Could be a tough matchup as Oakland is 5th in baseball in wRC+ against lefties.

Spot starting tonight against the Rockies, but seems destined to ride the bus back to AAA after the game. It'll be interesting to see what he looks like now with some rest, hopefully the back issues are behind him, and Long is eager to show what he has. I don't think they'll keep him in the pen, and would prefer to keep him stretched out in case he's needed again. As of now, I'm not sure there's a spot for him in the rotation, as Cueto's flexor strain was deemed mild and they said he would only miss one start, in all likelihood.
