Michael Kopech pitched 3 2/3 innings, allowing four hits, two walks, and four earned runs Wednesday. He struck out four Mariners and tallied a no-decision.
Kopech was making his first start since being removed on August 22nd with a left knee strain. The 26-year-old has a 3.78 ERA, .202 BAA, and a 1.79 K/BB ratio in 24 starts this season. Kopech should be trusted moving forward, as this was likely a result of the time spent on the IL.
