The bullpen did pretty well today. Burton, Burnett each walked a batter, Manship and Swarzak gave up a hit each and Waldrop gave up a run on two hits. Each of them pitched one inning. There was a report that Swarzak and Maloney were going to be stretched out as potential starters in case Baker isn't ready to start, but Swarzak's single inning would seem to contradict that. Burnett has now had two good outings in a row after a rough start.
