It's purely based on Niemann's down, we don't need that other starter until next week. So we want to be able to give Sam [Fuld] a day off today. Left handed pitcher for them [Zach Britton]. Why not bring up Brandon? It just makes sense. So that's what we did.â†µ
I've never heard of bringing up a hitter just to give another hitter a game off.â†µ
In Guyer's first at-bat, he hit a two-run homer off Britton.
