The Rockies and Jason Hammel look to return to eleven games over .500 after today's game against Randy Wells and the Cubs.
#36 / Pitcher / Chicago Cubs
Aug 28, 1982
Wells (8-4, 2.73) has been a revelation for the Cubs this year, a 27 year-old fringe prospect that has panned out well. Looking at advanced stats, Wells is having a little luck but still has pitched very well (3.74 FIP and .275 BABIP).
#46 / Pitcher / Colorado Rockies
Sep 02, 1982
Meanwhile Hammel (8-8, 4.65 ERA) hasn't pitched up to his FIP (3.80) and has been unlucky with BABIP (.354). However, Hammel's well documented home struggles (1-3, 7.20 ERA) are something that he needs to overcome.Gameday Link

Clint Barmes is back in the lineup. Let's hope that he keeps homering every 16 ABs, but also has a few other hits mixed in as well.
