“He’s had a couple rough starts against teams in our division, their lineups are primarily right-handed, a lot of power and veteran-type hitters and tonight, you just have way more confidence in how he threw the ball,” manager Brandon Hyde said. “You could see it from the first inning, so you hope he takes this into the offseason and understands he can pitch here. Now, it’s about command and changing speeds. As a left-hander that’s not going to overpower you, you’ve got to be able to pitch to both sides of the plate. You’re going to face a majority right-handed hitters.
