This just in: Clay Hensley will replace Justin Germano in the Padres starting rotation around the All-Star break.
Impossible, you say?
After all, Germano is 4-0 with a 1.74 ERA. Hensley is 1-3 with a 7.62 ERA for the Padres … and now pitching in the minors.
What will change?
Starting tonight with the Seattle Mariners, some teams will see Germano for the second time this season. And they’re going to love jumping on that hanging breaking ball they just missed the first time.
Hensley, meanwhile, has much better movement on his ball than Germano.
So don’t be surprised when the Padres alter their pitching rotation about mid-season.
