In case you missed it, Hunter Gaddis is getting the call-up from Triple-A to make a spot start against the White Sox today. He is replacing Peyton Battenfield, who was placed on the 15-day injured list on May 19 with shoulder inflammation.

Gaddis, presumably the last pitcher on the Columbus Clippers roster, has a 6.86 ERA in four starts (plus one bullpen appearance) in the majors in the season. He hasn’t faired much better in four minor-league starts, with a 5.12 ERA in 19.1 innings. He has struck out Triple-A batters at twice the clip he whiffs major leaguers, at least.
