Scouting Report on todays starters from MLB.com
Sean Marshall – Marshall was called up to fill the fifth starter spot, and will make his 2007 debut against the Padres. He was slowed this spring because of fatigue in his shoulder. Marshall made five starts at Class A Daytona and Triple-A Iowa, and was a combined 3-0 with a 2.05 ERA.
David Wells – In what was clearly his best and longest start of the season Wells allowed one run over eight innings in a no-decision against the Reds on May 15. Wells pounded the strike zone, striking out five without issuing a walk. Better still, he was economical with his pitches, needing only 88 of them over his eight innings.
