It's official. Manager Fredi Gonzalez announced after Tuesday's game that Hayden Penn would start the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader and Ricky Nolasco would start Friday on short rest. Saturday's starter remains a question mark.
Penn will be receiving his first start since 2006 when he was with the Baltimore Orioles.
"I'm goign to try to go as deep as I can," said Penn, who may be limited to no more than 60 and 70 pitches.
Nolasco will go on 3-day's rest when he starts Friday. He threw 76 pitches before rain cut short his outing on Monday.
