Koji did pitch well last night. But 76 pitches and he’s done. It’s not that I think Koji isn’t a good pitcher, it’s that he shouldn’t be in the starting rotation. Because of constant rain yesterday the game time temperature was 74, not the expected 90, yet Koji is finished after 6 and 76 pitches. Don’t forget koji spent the last couple of years pitching in the bullpen. He was finished as a starter in Japan. Having a starter who can’t get past the 6th on his best nights isn’t helping the team in the long run. Koji would be better suited to pitch out of the Orioles bullpen. I think that someone like Baez will be traded in the next month and the O’s will put one of the Norfolk pitchers like Patton or Hernandez in the rotation and Koji will go to the bullpen. “Nice play” by Zaun at the end of the game.
