please share.

The Padres view Corey Luebke’s future as a starting pitcher. But for the time being, the 26-year-old is the long man and the only left-hander in the Padres bullpen. Will this hurt his future as a starter? Padres manager – and former pitcher and pitching coach -- Bud Black emphatically thinks not.

“I lot of starters over the year have started in the bullpen,” Black said recently. And for proof, he need look no father than his own rotation. Both Dustin Moseley and Tim Stauffer as recently as last season worked in the bullpen – Stauffer for the Padres and Moseley for the Yankees.

Luebke has allowed no runs on eight hits and one walk over 10 2/3 innings (seven appearances) since he allowed six runs in the 11th inning against Cincinnati on April 12. Luebke has 10 strikeouts over the 10 2/3 innings. http://www.signonsandiego.com/news/2011 ... temporary/

Been waiting (hoping) for him to break into the rotation. Think he has some real value considering where he would be pitching and the skills he has shown.

I think they're just waiting for June. Just to cap his innings. At least I'm hoping. I've been stashing him all season.

Hoyer hopes Cory Luebke will be a starter for the rest of the season. "He's a starting pitcher in our minds." It depends on how well he pitches.

good background on Luebke here.
A pineapple can could bat .300 in Tucson, and similar conditions favor hitters in other PCL haunts. Among those is Salt Lake City, where Luebke fared so poorly in a game last summer that a non-Padres scout, stumped by the fuss over him, couldn't write up Luebke as a prospect. Some pitching prospects can weather life in the PCL. Others lose confidence and good form. Petco Park, conversely, nurtures a pitcher's confidence. It's especially hospitable to lefty pitchers who can keep the ball out of the left-field seats.

Luebke justified the move to relief. He has given the Padres a 3.23 ERA in 39 innings across 29 outing. He took his lumps in early April, but since allowing six runs to the Reds on April 12, he has been Steve Howe-like with a 1.65 ERA in 25 games. He struck out 35 over those 32.2 innings. Safe to say, such results build confidence.

Tomorrow, he returns to starting. He draws the lefty-laden Braves.
