It seems as though J.R. Towles needs a little confidence boost, and Dave Clark is more than happy to oblige. Towles will be starting the next two games on this road trip.
“More so than anything it could possibly be a confidence thing with him. You look back and you can even go back to this year at Triple-A. He was hurt a little bit and he didn't get a whole lot of at-bats at Triple-A and the fact that we're getting him here and he's not playing on an everyday basis. He's going to be given an opportunity to be our guy. That's what I believe in. That's what I'm going on.”
Of course, with Jason Castro on the horizon, there's a decision to be made with the C3 spot - Quintero, or Towles.
