Scott Diamond was brilliant in his 2012 debut and then duplicated the effort in his second outing. Can P.J. Walters muster the same magic? It'd be nice, barring another 11-run effort.
|2012 - Doug Fister||0-1||3||3||0||0||0||0||16.2||12||1||1||0||3||14||0.54||.90|
|2012 - P.J. Walters||0-1||1||1||0||0||0||0||6.0||6||2||2||1||0||5||3.00||1.00|
So, this guy. In his first start of the year, Walters mixed in a lot of breaking balls against right-handed hitters but was largely fastball-changeup against lefties. That pattern is likely to be similar today, although how he selects his pitches in certain situations may vary a bit more. Going back to the start of 2011 batters have hit .571 off his curveball though, so it might be fun to just avoid that option in general.
