Pre-Gamin’: Diamondbacks at Cubs (1:20 CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread

Chicago Cubs

This afternoon, Trevor Williams is making his second start (and third overall appearance) back from his emergency appendectomy and trip to the IL. His last start, against the Cardinals, was a bit of a mixed bag. On the one hand, his velocity was down a click and he allowed 4 earned runs over 5.0 innings pitched. But on the other hand, his velocity being down isn’t a surprise after how much time he missed and he certainly LOOKED better than the results would indicate (he netted 13 whiffs and was generating a TON of swings on pitches out of the zone).

In other words, he had something working for him. Maybe it just didn’t quite come together. He has had his moments this season, and he’s under team control for another year after this one. I, for one, am genuinely interested in seeing what he’s got for another go as a Cubs starter in 2022.
