Big blow to Athen's Hopes as Rabisca goes on the DL

Post by jtannehill » Wed Jan 20, 2021 2:32 pm

The Athens Fighting Centaurs hopes took a huge step back last week as their star pitcher Mateus Rabisca felt a sharp twinge in his back while pitching in the 3rd inning against the Bucharest club and was diagnosed with a herniated disc and will be out for the rest of the regular season. The injury couldn't have come at a worse time for the Centaurs as they were making a run at a wild card spot and got to within 1.5 games of Mumbai who earlier this season had lost their own star player and have since played under .500 ball and allowed Athens to creep back in the race. Rabisca's absence cannot be understated as the Athens team has lost 9 out of their last 10 games and have fallen 3.5 games back of Mumbai since the injury.

Counting on the Youngsters
Mike Chubb will be making his ML debut this week in place of Shing Ren who will go down to the bullpen. Chubb originally from the UK was on the injured list most of the season while the majority of the other young pitching prospects were getting their feet wet this year and is finally ready to be added for the home stretch of the season. Chubb features a lively fastball and a plus breaking pitch as well and Tannehill is hopeful he can give some quality innings in place of Rabisca.

Rookie of the Year
Aeneas Pittakis is the Athens club hopeful for the ROY this season. Pittakis is a hometown Greek national and is revered in Athens. PIttakis is only 5'10 at 160 lbs but has a wipeout slider and throws a forkball that has baffled hitters all season.

Athens needs to right the ship soon if they want to make their first playoff appearance under Tannehill. Still a lot of games against Bucharest and none vs. Mumbai so they need to get it done against other teams and the bullpen will be huge in determining the outcome in this race.

Yeah that's a tough break on Rabisca. It will likely come down to the end. You guys did good to hang in there this year.
