MLB Betting Alert: Oswalt on 60-65 pitch count against St. Louis

05.17.2011     08:29 AM     Printer Friendly

Philadelphia (Oswalt) at St. Louis (Garcia) -145 O/U 7

Tonight in St. Louis, Philadelphia's Roy Oswalt will make his first start since April 26. Oswalt was on the DL with back issues. As a result, he is expected to be on a fairly strict pitch count of 60-65 pitches.


"I felt pretty good," Oswalt said. "The biggest thing is just getting the arm strength going again and location. It may take a start or two to get going."

"I went through three or four starts when I didn't have 94, 95 mph, when you have to learn how to pitch," Oswalt said. "Velocity ain't no big deal to me. I feel like I can throw enough offspeed pitches and locate the ball well enough where I can pitch."

Manager Charlie Manuel said Oswalt will likely be limited to 60-65 pitches in his first start back. Manuel said it was preferable that Oswalt build endurance at the major league level while keeping right-hander Vance Worley, optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Monday, available for starting or long relief in the minors.
