Rockies Game #67: Wade LeBlanc vs. Juan Nicasio

Loading Scores


After Dustin Moseley's separated shoulder has sent him to the disabled list, the Rockies will instead face soft-tossing lefty Wade LeBlanc, who will be arriving from AAA Tucson to join the rotation.  There, the southpaw pitched to an elevation and bad luck inflated 5.24 ERA.  He struck out just two batters in one eight inning start for the Padres earlier in the season. 

Despite being a AAA call-up, he isn't a stranger to Rockies hitters.  This is the fourth season that LeBlanc has spent a portion in the majors with San Diego.

LeBlanc's repertoire actually doesn't live on breaking stuff, as he chooses to go with ~86mph fastballs (~50%), low 80's cutters (~17%), and mid-70's change-ups (~23%) in his career.  He will flash a curve ball less than 10% of the time.  So this wouldn't be a bad lefty for Seth Smith to start against.
