Cubs SP Donn Roach clobbered by Cardinals in 2015 debut


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/27/2015) Cubs right-hander Donn Roach flirted with danger in the first inning of his first start of the season Saturday in St. Louis. He succumbed to it in the fourth and never survived.

Roach began the game by loading the bases, then inducing Yadier Molina to hit into a double play. He was fine in the second and third, but then came the epic collapse. He allowed four singles and a double before his merciful removal. The two runs that scored on a Matt Carpenter single after he left were charged to him.

The bottom line was four runs on eight hits in 3 1/3 innings with one walk and one strikeout. Roach begins his 2015 season with a 10.80 ERA and is likely wishing he had not been forced to make his debut against the best team in baseball in its home park.

Padres expected to start Billy Buckner, not Donn Roach Saturday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/23/2014) Though he was expected to make his second start Saturday against the Cubs, it looks like Donn Roach won't be used in that role for the Padres this weekend.

MLB.com reports Friday Billy Buckner is expected to get the call for the Padres to start Saturday, with Roach available out of the bullpen instead. Buckner has been pitching at Triple-A El Paso since signing a minor-league deal with the Padres, and will likely be added prior to Saturday's game, according to the report.

Roach has appeared in 13 games this season, including one start which saw him throw just three innings. The decision was likely made in order to get a pitcher who is already stretched out into the starting role, since the Padres had to get four-plus innings from the bullpen Thursday. 


Donn Roach set for at least one more start


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/20/2014) Padres pitcher Donn Roach will make his second start of the season Saturday against the Cubs, but that may be the last time he fills in for an injured Andrew Cashner for a few weeks.

Roach's next turn in the rotation is the last time the team needs a fifth starter until June 3 against the Pirates, according to MLB.com. Cashner might still need time to recover from an elbow injury beyond that, though it might not be much time, after an MRI came back and showed no structural damage. 


Donn Roach lasts only three innings in first start


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/18/2014) Padres pitcher Donn Roach made his first career start on Sunday, but failed to factor into the decision of a 8-6 defeat to the Rockies in extras.

Roach surrendered four runs on four hits and two walks while striking with no strikeouts in three innings of work. He tossed 46 pitches, 25 for strikes. He owns a 3.75 ERA and a 1.28 WHIP in 24 innings pitched this season. If he remains in the rotation, Roach will make his next start Saturday at home against the Cubs.

Donn Roach likely on 60-pitch limit Sunday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/17/2014) The Padres won't expect a big workload from rookie Donn Roach in his first start Sunday against the Rockies, as he was plucked out of the bullpen to replace Andrew Cashner in the rotation.

"He can probably give us 60 pitches that we can feel good about," manager Bud Black told MLB.com Saturday. "He threw two innings the other night and had two days off. He has started in his past and he's got a sinkerball where, if it's working, he should be efficient. We'll find out tomorrow."

Roach has a 2.57 ERA in 21 innings for the Padres, all as a reliever. Whether he will remain in Cashner's place in the rotation moving forward is not yet known.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
