BRAVES: What happens with Medlen?

Postby IonZephyr » Thu Jul 25, 2013 3:41 pm

I was convinced Kris Medlen was bound to be put back in the bullpen due to Beachy coming back soon.....

but NOW with the Hudson injury, is that still the case? Any chance he stays a starter now?

I think a lot will depend on how Alex Wood does. I just traded Medlen away (just before I was about to cut him). He's been very poor as of late and I don't think he's worthy of starting in most leagues anyway.

I think Medlen is pretty safe now. I have a hard believing Wood would be in the rotation over Medlen. They handle Wood carefully and he should be in the pen.

Agreed depends on Wood. Medlen is a proven bullpen asset, only reason there isn't even debate is that he prefers to start. If Wood is even remotely serviceable I think Medlen slides to middle/long relief, i.e. fantasy purgatory.

If you own him I would hold onto him til you have a definitive answer, if you are inclined to trade for him I would wait.
