"Chris had been four days [since he last pitched] and we didn't have anybody else, and we had wanted to get him out there, and he had had 20 minutes to get loose," Showalter said. "I think it's good for him, in a way. I'll tell you, the last time he pitched, he felt pretty good the next day. I'll be curious to see how he is with the short turnaround. I had four guys yesterday I couldn't use, and I didn't want to overuse [Richard] Bleier and not have him available today, because the next two hitters could have been 20 pitches."
