There was some rumblings in some other threads about what happens to Wes when Mitre and (gasp) julio come back.

We can't just send him down to AAA without waiving him right? With the way he's pitched, am I correct in assuming he'd most likely get claimed? If Anibal is indeed playing through injury, JJ is still up in the air, Mitre and Nolasco have been hurting.. can we afford to lose another starter? We can't keep rushing the younger guys up here.

He is also good to have around for Spot Starts should someone go down with injury. Assuming he is available for that day as a starter. Although long relif is a good role for him, but what sucks is that usually in long relif situations most likely you are behind in a game already.

Good, he can be used in a non save situtation where the game is still close and give us a few innings.

Mitre is out of options, that's why he was even in the rotation to start the year.

I think Mitre and Obermueller should fight for that 5th spot.

Obermueller has defenatly pitched well enough to at least earn the right to stick around

I am not hating on Mitre so much as stating the obvious...he got outpitched by Obermueller so far this year, to just come back and be handed a rotation spot over a pitcher who has performed better(and you cant say "well in the past" because they have both sucked their entire careers) is just wrong. Since neither will be in the rotation a month or two from now when JJ gets back, why not go with the pitcher who has given us a better chance to win in his starts, which is Obermueller?

When do we start thinking about moving Olsen down to #3?
what # they are really doesn't make a difference once the season starts

...the Mitre haters just never give up... :confused

I'm not a hater, I actually like him a lot, but that's straight up what they told him. If he had options he would have started the season in AAA until they needed the 5th starter because his arm can't handle the pen right now.

So if Lee Gardener gets sent down when Mitre is activated, and several players out of options, who gets sent down when Julio is activated?
