Houston Astros Manager in trouble After this failed Plan

Manager of the Houston Astros Shares Plans for Rookie Pitcher Following Tough Debut.

Following a disastrous debut for their top pitching prospect, Joe Espada of the Houston Astros disclosed what lies next for the young pitcher.
Even though it’s just April, injuries have already severely damaged the Houston Astros’ rotation.

With Lance McCullers Jr., Framber Valdez, Jose Urquidy, Justin Verlander, and Luis Garcia all on the injured list, new manager Joe Espada has had to be unconventional and rely on young players.
Unsurprisingly, the outcomes have not been great.

In two of the last three games, the 4-9 Astros have started a rookie, and both of those teams were thoroughly defeated.

Top pitching prospect Spencer Arrighetti was the most recent casualty, as he was humiliated by the Kansas City Royals on Wednesday during his Major League Baseball debut. The 24-year-old right-hander was destroyed by an 11-2 score after only three innings of work, with seven runs given up in the third.

Many Houston supporters were probably wondering if Arrighetti would stay in the rotation or be sent back down to Triple-A Sugar Land after his dismal appearance.

Espada gave clarification on the rookie’s next steps following the game.
Espada stated that Arrighetti will receive another chance, but she did not say when.

Having three days off over the next two weeks means Espada won’t need to utilize Arrighetti very soon. The rookie’s next start is scheduled for early next week at home against the Atlanta Braves, which is a difficult matchup for a young pitcher attempting to acquire experience. Maybe Espada will give Arrighetti a few extra days off and use him against the Nationals of Washington.

Whichever team wins, Arrighetti will at least have an opportunity to make amends.

I hope this is a better start for him than the last one.
