Look­ing Ahead

The Denver Post - - SPORTS - —Pa­trick Saun­ders, The Den­ver Post

Mets RHP Chris Flexen (0-1, 9.00 ERA) at Rock­ies RHP Tyler Chatwood (6-11, 4.78), 6:40 p.m. Wed­nes­day, AT&T Sport­sNet; 850 AM

Af­ter a one-game stint in the bullpen, Chatwood is back in the ro­ta­tion — at least for now. Sim­ply put, he needs to quit walk­ing bat­ters. His 62 walks were the most in the Na­tional League en­ter­ing Tues­day’s games, and that wild­ness has got­ten him into trou­ble all sea­son. He faced the Mets at Citi Field on July 15 but left be­cause of a back in­jury af­ter al­low­ing a homer and four runs in one-third of an in­ning. In six ca­reer starts vs. the Mets, he’s 3-1 with 2.67 ERA. Flexen is mak­ing his sec­ond big-league start. He made his MLB de­but Thurs­day at San Diego, tak­ing the loss in a 7-5 de­feat. He al­lowed four runs (three earned) on five hits with four walks and two strike­outs. Flexen, who had Tommy John surgery in 2014, throws a mid-90s fast­ball, a de­cent curve­ball and a de­vel­op­ing slider.
