in his first game.

Carrillo has walked 6 and struck out 3 in 8 big league innings this year. He's a right hander who hasn't even been good in AAA in 3 years -- totaling about 34 innings -- and wasn't dominant for the Padres' AA team this season. Apparently we should look for a fastball, curve and changeup from Carrillo. He's a guy who has had pretty good success getting ground balls in the minors even if his K rate is pretty low.

I'm excited to watch this one.
