Eric Stults made his 2008 Debut in yesterday's game against the Cincinnati Reds. The 28-year-old southpaw pitched six innings, striking out a total of five batters. The Dodgers are fortunate to have him in their Starting-Rotation.
Stults, a fifteen-round draft pick in 2002, was recently called up to the Major Leagues to replace the injured ace, Brad Penny, in the Starting-Rotation. Penny, the Dodgers' 2008 Opening Day starter, went down with a case of mild tendinitis and inflation in his pitching arm. With Penny out of action until after the All-Star Break, we will certainly be seeing more of Stults in the future.
