Andy Oliver called up

He's been called up to take Phil Coke's spot in the rotation while he spends some time on the DL. Worth an add for those 2 or 3 starts? His first start tomorrow would be against that downright HOT BoSox lineup :-o

possibly worth a pickup since i think if he pitches decent he'll take Cokes job so they can put him back in the pen (although the trade for Purcey gave them another lefty in the pen)

i sure as hell wouldnt start him tomorrow though :-o

He got a quality start going 6 IP and allowing three earned. Only 3 Ks.

I didn't see the game so check out the clippings to get a better feel.

He struggled early, literally had no movement on his slider. Leaned on his fastball changeup combo. In his last two innings he suddenly had his slider and looked pretty sharp. I was pretty impressed how composed he was after getting beat up early against a lineup thats been red hot.
