“We have D.J. [Carrasco] a possibility again, but we could go with the kid Torres again or go with Wes Whistler. Those are the names. … Freddy won’t be ready for that. Freddy probably needs at least three more [starts] for us to start saying, ‘OK, let’s see where he is right now.’ He’s still getting his feet and legs underneath him. Freddy is up to five innings, 60 pitches, and his velocity was 87-88 mph average. We know that Freddy is hard balls and smarts, and we know his curveball, slider, changeup will be there, because they’re always there, he can throw them on Christmas morning. It’s a little more game stuff for him, making sure legs are under him and arm is strong. He’s further along than where Jake is, but Jake didn’t have an arm injury, Freddy did. Getting to Jake, he’s going to have a side day [Wednesday] in San Diego and take two days off. Then he’ll do something with us on Saturday.”
