July 25, 2021
Espino allowed three runs on five hits and one walk while striking out six in five innings during Sunday's 5-4 loss to the Orioles. He didn't factor into the decision.
ANALYSIS
Espino struggled against the long ball early in Sunday's contest, as he gave up solo homers in the first, second and fourth innings. He hadn't given up more than one home run in any of his appearances earlier in the year, but his five-inning start against Baltimore matched his longest outing of the season. The right-hander has posted a 3.21 ERA and 1.05 WHIP in 56 innings across 23 appearances (seven starts) in 2021. Espino could move back to the bullpen next week since Joe Ross (elbow) is slated to return Monday.
