Astros GM Jeff Luhnow made his weekly appearance on The Josh Innes Show Wednesday following news Lance McCullers was scratched from his scheduled start due to "arm fatigue."
Luhnow says McCullers threw his normal routine and mentioned he felt some discomfort and fatigue afterward. Out of an abundance of caution, the team decided to scratch him from his start. Luhnow noted, “If this were the playoffs, he would be making that start.”
Verlander looked incredible Wednesday night and Jeff Luhnow talked about how important that was for a team that just got swept in Oakland. He also discussed if he has concerns about the bullpen after that sweep.
