isnt this just another way of asking if he is going to the pen? there is another thread right above this at the moment about it, and you posted in it. im sure if anyone has info they will post it there. his questionable start is supposed to be against the nats anyways.

No, this isnt just another way of asking if he is going to the pen.....I was on the who to start/bench forum and noticed that someone had asked if he should start him since this would be his last start before going to the bullpen. I thought that maybe that I had missed something or someone had updated information on the situation in Milwaukee and was wondering if anyone else had heard this. Here is the link....

Perfectly legit question, no need to get uptight about the post .... A lot of people are wondering if Gallardo is going to get a start this weekend, me included.

sorry, i just saw it as the same since if he isnt going to the pen then he will get another start before the break. and if he is going to the pen then he will not get another start before the break.

now for a real response..... i havent read anything for sure. most reports(yahoo, cbs, brewers website) say that he is going to the pen, or he isnt scheduled for another start at this time. the only one ive read that said he would is that one from the madison paper's website. kinda makes me think he wont get one before the break, im still holding him until its %100 sure.

I don't see it happening. Capuano is coming off the DL to pitch on Tuesday. I don't think anyone is being demoted to the bullpen.

The conventional wisdom is that a young pitcher shouldn't throw more than 25-30 more innings than the year before. I've heard it as the difference between Johan Santana and Francisco Loriano. One Twins pitcher was done the right way, the other wasn't.

Look for him to rejoin the rotation sometime in August or September unless an injury forces him in the rotation sooner. Though it's possible Villanueva may get some looks at starter if that happens, too. They're going to be careful with this kid, IMO.

Slightly off topic, but this "conventional wisdom" is pure folly. One of the two pitchers you mentioned also possessed an elbow-shredding slider. Liriano's elbow blows eventually no matter how many innings he would've thrown last year.

eventually......... while true thats kinda silly itself to say. you like to prevent those things from happening as much as possible. everyone dies eventually, but if you take care of yourself it takes longer to die.

Gallardo will be coming out of the pen with Capuano back and starting on Tuesday, from everything I've seen/read.
