This is a very quick turnaround for Paulino, who was selected to the Philadelphia roster just two days ago. The 27-year-old righty pitched two innings against the Reds yesterday, his first MLB action since 2018, surrendering two runs on three hits. His Triple-A numbers on the year are solid, if unspectacular. He has an ERA of 4.35 over 51 2/3 innings, with a quality strikeout rate of 25.2% but an unfortunate walk rate of 10.4%.
As for Falter, the 24-year-old lefty has been on the COVID-IL since mid-July. Before that, he had been bouncing between the minors and the majors. In 30 2/3 innings at Triple-A this season, he has an excellent 1.76 ERA with a strikeout rate of 36.7% and walk rate of 6.7%. In 18 innings at the MLB level, he has a 4.50 ERA, but with a strikeout rate of 29.6% and walk rate of 1.4%, both of which are much better than average.
