Happy June! The Sim Rockies travel back to the desert (where it is a balmy 106 degrees outside) after back-to-back losses at the hands of the Sim Giants in the Bay Area. Evan Grills will make his MLB debut for the Sim Rox. The 27-year-old Canadian lefty was drafted by the Houston Astros in the 10th round of the 2010 draft. He was signed by the Rockies as a minor league free agent in 2016 and has been with the Albuquerque Isotopes ever since. He has been used both as a starter and a reliever, but has been a starter in Sim Albuquerque. Grills has posted a 3.46 ERA in 54 2⁄3 innings, which is no small feat in the PCL. He will face off against Diamondbacks’ young right-hander Corbin Martin, who made five starts in 2019 and posted a 5.59 ERA in 19 1⁄3 innings.
Start Time: 7:45pm MT
