In this case “DH” is short for double header.

I wouldn’t be surprised if that is Cumpton.

If the bullpen is not overused in the next week, it could be Jeanmar, which I would prefer over Cumpton. Might be a good time to promote Hughes for bullpen depth and go with 13 pitchers for a week or so.

That’s how much stronger he would make us

I’m not counting on JMac even IF he gets healthy.
