Today’s Matchup – June 15, 2011

Dexter Fowler was told by the team’ front office today that he’ll stay in Triple-A Colorado Springs even when he’s healthy so he can work on his swing. Fowler leads the team (by far) in strikeouts with almost 70.

Chacin the Machine gets the start today. He leads the team in pretty much every major statistical category, including ERA, strikeouts, wins, and innings pitched.
