Update II: Nope, probably the Cubs on Saturday.
- Wednesday @ Padres: Garcia
- Thursday @ Padres: Walters
- Friday vs. Cubs: Carpenter (on normal rest)
- Saturday vs. Cubs: Ottavino (on normal rest)
Update: I’m doing my rotation/schedule math again and it may not be the Cubs. That’s bad on me. Short version – Adam Ottavino will be in the St. Louis rotation.

We don’t pass it along if we aren’t confident in its veracity. Expect Adam Ottavino to be called up to start next week against the Cubs.
Congrats to Adam who is having a tremendous season this year. He’s certainly earned this chance with a lot of hard work and great pitching.
