Scouting Report on Today’s Starting Pitchers

Jason Marquis – Making his first start in a week, Marquis held the Phillies to two runs on four hits over five innings. The right-hander had been sidelined with strep throat, and skipped one start. He pitched well, although he did walk five.

Tom Gorzelanny – Gorzelanny silenced the rumors about possible shoulder problems with a solid outing in his last start on Sunday against the Reds. Coming off back-to-back ineffective outings, the southpaw hurled 6 1/3 innings and gave up just one run on four hits. He evened his record at 1-1 as the Pirates defeated the Reds, 9-1. The key for Gorzelanny was his command as he pounded the strike zone.

  • Can rear back and boost his low-90’s, darting heat to 95 m.p.h. when needed. Has a nasty slider and good change-up. Works well with runners on.
  • Needs to avoid the big inning in order to fully blossom as a starting pitcher. Could still use work on his stamina and ability to throw first-pitch strikes.
  • A good No. 2 starter.
