Hudson Lohse
2.27 FIP 4.43 FIP
Tim Hudson's been sensational in his first 2 starts since returning from Tommy John surgery. Of course, it was just 2 starts against the Marlins and Reds but they have to be happy w/ what they've seen. He's always been a ground ball pitcher so we've gotta make him elevate the ball.

This is a pretty big start for Lohse. He may be pitching for any playing time at all in the postseason. He's making his first start in three weeks and, considering how well Smoltz has pitched, Lohse may not get the opportunity to make those game 4 starts in October. If not, he becomes the guy at the end of the pen who only pitches in extra innings or blowouts. He's gotta prove to Dunc and Tony that he deserves a more prominent role.
