With the way their starting rotation has been pitching, if he did get called up, he'd more than likely be out of the pen. It just caught my ear because that was the first time I heard his name come up on Baseball Tonight.
I don't see the point in rushing the kid up to the show just yet if he's only going to come out of the 'pen. Let him pitch some innings in AAA and then if he continues his dominance, go ahead and bring him up as the 4th or 5th starter for the stretch run.
The Rays are in a tight race for the AL East... wouldn´t it make more sense for the Rays to pick up a veteran arm for the stretch run?
Uh, the rays may very well be on their way to running away with the AL East...just made the Sox look silly these last couple days and guys like Upton and Pena aren't even hitting all that well yet...if they all get hot for a couple weeks together, this team is downright scary.
