Sean O`Sullivan to start for San Diego on Friday

Jamie Squire

As many, including our very own Wonko earlier today, have suspected would happen, Sean O`Sullivan will indeed be the Padres' starting pitcher this Friday against the Giants. It will be a dream come true for the San Diego born and raised O`Sullivan, who grew up a Padres fan.

While the accompanying move that will free up room for O`Sullivan has yet to be announced, it's generally assumed that Clayton Richard will be headed to the 60-day DL.

O'Sullivan has appeared in three major league seasons, from 2009 through 2011 with the Royals and Angels. He made 34 starts and relieved in nine other games. His record was 10-14 with an ERA over six, but has done well in AAA the past two seasons. In 14 starts with Las Vegas, Toronto's AAA affiliate, in 2012 O`Sullivan went 9-3 with a 2.72 ERA. He's made 18 starts for Tucson this year and has compiled a 7-4 record backed by 3.88 ERA.

I love this. It's always cool when players get to play for their hometown team, and even cooler when those players are from San Diego. Even cooler yet is that his first start is at home so all his friends and family can experience it.
