Foppert Makes Debut
Though most of the story is devoted to the return of Bucky Jacobsen, the TNT notes that last night marked Jesse Foppert’s first start for the organization. He was on a strict pitch count, hence threw just one inning.
Pitching prospect Jesse Foppert, coming off an injury, started for Tacoma but was on a limit of 25 pitches or one inning. Foppert threw 16 pitches Ã¢â‚¬â€œ nine strikes Ã¢â‚¬â€œ and allowed one hit, a line-drive single, before turning the game over to right-hander Rich Dorman (4-4).
Despite my good wishes for Mr. Foppert‘s health, we will refrain from referring to him as “William.” It seems that wasn’t working anyway.
