Or we just saving him?
Kind of odd, our ace has only pitched a few innings in the past three weeks and we are now on a losing streak.
Van Horn said that Hagen Smith will pitch tomorrow in tonight’s postgame press conference.
Unless he started today, there has not been a time to pitch him so far in the series. You don’t want to waste him when you’re down several runs.
There was some thought to starting Smith today, but he got warm yesterday when the Razorbacks had the chance to take the lead late. He had to be ready to go if they went ahead.
The decision was made to let him rest a little more and pitch out of the bullpen if needed today. He is the type who has some soreness the day after he pitches, which I think is a reason you haven’t seen him used on back-to-back days in relief.
