Thompson has filled in admirably for the injured Lohse, going 2-1 in four June starts. He has been sent down twice this season; he was positively awful at the start of the season, but quite good since (3.26 ERA after the first of May). It will be very interesting to see if he stays in the rotation when Lohse returns. He’s definitely pitched better than Wellemeyer since 1 May (based on ERA and wPA).
24 June: 5 IP, 5 ER, 1 HR, L
29 June: 6 IP, 4 ER, 1 HR, L
Thanks Brad. Like my credibility needed another hit.
