Multiple adjustments/announcements to the rotation:
* Still Reyes for today.
* Wainwright will no longer pitch tomorrow (Thursday). In his place will be Wells.
* That’s because Wainwright is being pushed back to Friday, the opener of the Cubs series.
* That leaves Looper for the opener of Saturday’s doubleheader, and Pineiro in the second game.
* Mulder on Sunday against the Cubs.
* Monday and Tuesday vs Philadelphia to be determined, depending at least partly on how Reyes and Wells pitch this series, then back on rotation with Wainwright Wednesday 9/19 vs PHI, then Looper, Pineiro and Mulder the first three games at home against Houston.
* Down the road: Wainwright and Looper will go every five days from here on out. So Wainwright will pitch 9/19 at home vs PHI, 9/24 in the opener in Milwaukee and 9/29 in Pittsburgh. Looper will go 9/20 at home vs HOU, 9/25 in Milwaukee and 9/30, the final day of the season, in Pittsburgh.
-M, back in the saddle.
