WHAT TO WATCH: Jake Godfrey, LSU’s former No. 3 weekend starter, begins his new stint in the midweek role. Whether he continues in that role for the rest of the season, moves into the bullpen or retakes a weekend job is contingent on how he pitches. Godfrey has only thrown a combined 63 pitches and recorded a total of six outs in his last two starts.
