Wade Davis is still knocking on the door. Putting Niemann out there as a long term option and sliding Davis and Price into the rotation with Shields, Garza and Sonnanstine sure would be enticing if I were Freidman.
Only problem wit Niemann in that spot is that he tends to struggle early because it takes him a bit to get comfortable. They have been tweaking his pregame routine and have him throwing a simulated inning before he starts to get him in the groove. From his last 2 starts you can see it has worked, but you don't have that much time when you are coming in to close.
