Nate Robertson Working His Way Back

Nate Robertson is going to throw on the side today and if that goes well, he could get a rehab start next week according to this Jason Beck story.  Robertson came out of the gate throwing well this year but then he looked like a different person in his last six starts.  He lost five of those six and in four of them he gave up at least four runs.  And then there was that disaster on June 5th where he was tagged for six runs without getting a single batter out.

Still, if he can get back to his April form where he held hitters to a .600 OPS in five starts, it’ll be a big boost to the team.  Keep in mind that Robertson led all starters in batting average against left handed hitters last year and earlier in the year he forced Rod Gardenhire to sit last year’s batting champion, Joe Mauer, because of his effectiveness against left handed hitters.  Plus, being left handed, I have a fondness for southpaws so I’m looking forward to seeing Robertson back in the rotation.
