Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez is set to make his highly anticipated debut in red pinstripes today against the Yankees (1:05 p.m., MLB Network), as the 27-year-old native of Cuba is scheduled to throw two innings in relief.
All eyes will be glued to Gonzalez — especially those of Phillies officials.
The righty comes with plenty of hype but fluctuating expectations.
Hence, the "Mystery Man" label.
From Clearwater, CSNPhilly.com's Jim Salisbury has more on that here.
Martin shut down for three weeks
Pitcher Ethan Martin will not throw for at least three weeks before being reevaluated after being diagnosed with a strain of his right shoulder capsule and triceps, the Phillies announced Saturday morning.
Martin was clearly not himself Thursday when he hovered around 85 mph after clocking in the mid-90s last season as a rookie.
Right-hander David Buchanan starts for the Phils and opposes Yankees lefty CC Sabathia.
