This could be Jordan Zimmermann’s last home start of his career in Washington, DC. Jordan Zimmermann takes the mound on Jordan Zimmermann bobblehead day.
Could this also be the day that the line-up has Trea Turner starting and that it remains that way for the rest of the season? Nats fans seem to want a glimpse of the future now.
The Phillies will pitch another rookie with Jerad Eickhoff who came over from Texas in the Cole Hamels trade and Eickhoff had a great debut. This will be his 7th start and he brings in a 3.16 ERA and some impressive stats.
Eickhoff throws a lot of breaking pitches in almost a 50/50 mix with his fastballs. His curveball is his primary breaking pitch and he will work in his slider. He throws both his 4-seam and sinker at 92-94mph and will work in a few changeups.
This will be the first time Eickhoff will face the Nats.
