Disappointment – Matthew Liberatore
After such high hopes, it is disappointing that Matthew Liberatore’s first start at Wrigley Field wasn’t as spectacular as we all hoped.
Now 1-1, Liberatore pitched 3.1 innings, giving up six hits, and four earned runs including three home runs mentioned earlier. He did induce nine swings and misses, but Liberatore couldn’t seem to get on track to pitch without being a little wild.
Hopefully, he will dust off this bad outing and develop into the lefty we’ve been hoping for, but in the meantime, he was demoted back to AAA Memphis. He will be back sooner rather than later.
