During Brandon Claussen's start against the White Sox tonight, if you could call two innings a start, I couldn't help thinking that we may be seeing the last of The Pickle for a while. Marc Lancaster seems to have additional support for that theory.
It's safe to assume Brandon Claussen won't be making his next scheduled start Wednesday against the Mets. Asked that question directly tonight, this is what Jerry Narron had to say:
“Brandon Claussen’s been in our rotation all year. He did have a good outing last time, we are looking for him to be more consistent and give us some good outings. We definitely gave Joe Mays a chance to get stretched out a little bit tonight. You face a lineup like that, you’ve got to have good stuff. You cannot go out there half-stepping.”
Go read the rest of Marc's post; Claussen's response is quite interesting.
