He was expected to start Thursday's game, but the matchup was rained out as stated above. Meanwhile, the Heroes will counter with Young Gun Jo, who has posted a 4.70 ERA in 2020. Jo has five appearances (four starts) this season and is yet to post a quality start, so he can't be trusted for a very extensive appearance.
