They are not going to shut Duke down. No way. If they do that, he'll end up like Perez did when they wouldn't let him pitch in winter ball. I say let the guys pitch whenever it's their turn.
If anything, that means they'll give him an extra day of rest here and there. When Perez comes back they'll have six guys they can use...maybe they'll just go with a six man rotation for the rest of the year. Who knows with Lloyd.
