Hudson's getting smacked around right now but there's worse than the 19 IP/ 19 Ks/ 0 HRs/ lots of groundballs combo to open the season.

What does the "that makes it 14-4" reference?

Another solid outing for Assad. 5 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 3 K.

Brings him to 19 IP, 14 H, 4 BB, 17 K with a WHIP and ERA of 0.95 as a 20-year-old in Low A. His stuff needs to improve if he's going to become a realistic MLB prospect, but he's getting the job done against MWL hitters.

That makes more sense.

Ricky Tyler Thomas doing it again in a piggyback capacity this time. Announcer says he expects Thomas to pitch the 9th, but so far 3 IP, 1 H 0 R, 0 BB, 5 K.

Tyler got two quick outs in the 9th but allowed 4 straight hits letting in 2 runs. 3.2 IP giving up just 1 H, 0 BB with 6 Ks. After that, not so much. 0.1 IP, 4 H, 2 ER, 0 BB and 1 K as he got the final out via strikeout.

Daury Torrez now has an ERA of 0.43, when is he going to get to Iowa to replace some of the slugs that are pitching in Des Moines?

I know Clifton's stuff backed up last year. Is he showing better stuff this year? I'm just trying to think what the Cubs may be thinking in regards to Clifton's timeline. He's obviously young enough to keep him starting for now, but we're veering on close to a full-season's work at the AA level, and it's fair to say that the stuff isn't playing well enough at the level. Just trying to ponder if his stuff will play up out of the pen, and if so, when they might make the move. If the fastball can play up, the breaking ball inconsistency would be a bit mitigated out of the pen, and if he can get back to touching mid-90's out of the pen, he might even be a possible late inning-ish type of guy instead of your dime-a-dozen middle reliever.

As for Torrez moving to AAA ... I can't see that happening right now due to 12 innings of work to start the season. Maybe later, but his stuff is what he is. He does throw strikes, but the biggest thing is ... the pen options in Iowa are doing well enough. It's been bad starting pitching there to start the year, if anything. An extended run from Torrez of consistently doing well, and yeah, I could see him up at Iowa this summer, perhaps.
