Mariners pitcher Tony Zych to start Wednesday
Mariners pitcher Tony Zych will start Wednesday against the Astros. With James Paxton (finger) unable to go, the Mariners will turn to Zych, a fourth-round pick by the Cubs in the 2011 first-year player draft.It will be Zych's first start at any level as a professional. The right-hander turned in a 2.98 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 55:9 K:BB between Double-A and Triple-A this season, and has fared reasonably well in 11 appearances so far with the big club, but he hasn't thrown more than 32 pitches in an outing since his September callup.
