This will be the Major League debut of Davies, a 22-year-old righty acquired from the Orioles at the non-waiver Trade Deadline. He's generously listed at 6-foot and does not throw hard, but he features a terrific changeup.

With a 9.00 ERA in his last four starts, Sampson needs to not only find command of his fastball but success with his secondary pitches. His fastball has been getting hit hard often and he’s not going deep in games.
