Jarlin Garcia moved back to pen, Elieser Hernandez to start tonight, Caleb Smith pushed to Wednesday

Recommended Posts

His good starts were mirages, his bad starts were a bit worse than he actually pitched. He's somewhere in between the two: a guy with a projected ERA between 5 and 6 has no place in a major league rotation.

He was barely allowing baserunners in his starts to begin the year. He had four good starts in a row and was leading MLB in ERA after those starts. I know you may be one of those people who say ERA means nothing which is fine but he also had a good WHIP. Unless that also means nothing nowadays.

Very weird. It's probably more that they want to see what Hernandez can do but seems very odd to pull Garcia at this point even with the struggles. 

I think it is this.  This is a year to try things out

Rumors that Alcantara may be coming up soon. 

Are those actual rumors or is it just discussion that we’re past the point where he can be called up without screwing up service time.

On further analysis, Smith is performing amazingly well right now, Urena Chen and Straily are virtually locked in as starters even with struggles... so if they wanna try Elieser as a starter (which they do), Garcia is the odd man out and with his recent struggles maybe it IS the best time to give him a mini break and move him to the pen. He's flexible enough that he can jump right back into the rotation down the line. 

It seems like a really strange thing but it's the only move that makes sense right now.

Fair enough but you must agree the Song guy above is off his rocker with his analysis of Garcia.
