  • Kyle Garlick finds himself back in the lineup vs. the lefty starter Eduardo Rodriguez. Garlick has a .577 SLG against LHP for his career, and 8 of his 9 HRs have been hit off of lefties.
  • Byron Buxton is in the lineup as the DH tonight, probably just playing it safe for now, which makes sense.
  • Chris Paddack has 317 career innings and 317 career strikeouts, which I thought was cool.
  • That ball that Byron Buxton hit on Sunday has hit Phobos, sending it into a collision course with Mars.
