A's rotation

Postby Slow Pitch » Fri May 02, 2008 7:46 pm

When Rich Harden comes back & IF he can stay healthy who will leave the rotation? Eveland? Smith? Justin D?

They won't go 6 man on us will they?

One thing is for sure, they will not go to a 6 man rotation. But really it's too early to tell what is going to happen. Harden is getting another rehab start Tuesday. If all goes perfect that makes next Saturday the earliest he could start for the big club.

I would imagine that Smith is the odd man out and will be sent back down to AAA which is unfortunate because he has pitched well and has great mound presence. There are rumblings that Duke should move back to the bullpen but I don't see that happening since the pen has been so solid.

What ever they do it will only be temporary since Harden will be back on the DL in a couple weeks.

Without being too close to this team, I would speculate Smith because of how things shook out after ST. Im pretty sure they will go back to the arrangement they had on April 1st, but I would assume that he is the first guy to get called up when harden is hurt again on June 1st.
