The return of RHP Jose Macias to the Bees has caused Burlington to shuffle around its starting rotation. Macias, who takes the place of RHP Tyler Vail, will start tonight when the Bees take on the Fort Wayne TinCaps in the opener of a three-game series at Community Field. Macias, who sparkled at short-season Vermont with a 2-2 record and a 3.27 ERA, showed similar problems in Vermont as he did when he first started the season in Burlington.
It’s no secret that if Macias gets through the first inning, he will be ok. He had a 14.40 ERA in his first stint in Burlington. He had a 9.00 ERA in the first inning in Vermont. Let’s see how his second stint begins tonight.
