Scott Baker's return tonight was preceeded by Brian Duensing getting sent back to Rochester, but it's not a move that was unexpected. Fresh off a multi-year extension, this will be Baker's first appearance as the team's leader as starter; a role bestowed in earnest following the aforementioned contract. He offers a standard arsenal: fastball, changeup, curveball and slider. After Glen Perkins' strong performance last night, hopefully Baker can build on the momentum and, like Meat said, announce his presence with authority.

Scott Richmond

#48 / Pitcher / Toronto Blue Jays

Richmond, who mysteriously looks like a red 'X', is about to make his second start of the year. His first was a short one: four innings and three runs allowed in Cleveland. In 2008 Richmond started five games for the Jays, striking out 20 in 27 innings and walking just two, but giving up 32 hits en route to a 4.00 ERA. Like Baker, Richmond offers a fastball (92-93 mph), changeup, curveball and slider.
