Dana Eveland tossed three perfect innings tonight in relief of Jake Arrieta. Miguel Gonzalez threw four innings last night in Boston. The choice became an obvious one.
Hunter will be recalled from Triple-A Norfolk, and a corresponding 25-man roster move will be made by 1 p.m. tomorrow.
Showalter didn’t want to speculate about Arrieta’s immediate future, but the right-hander is a prime candidate to go down.
Arrieta told reporters that he’s “lost” right now.
He might find himself with Norfolk.
