Since he's on the 40-man Maine seems the likeliest option to fill in for Bannister. Iriki isn't on the 40 so he'd require a move, I doubt Heilman gets flip-flopped, and Lima is sucking it up big time.
Maine didn't start off too hot but has looked pretty good recently. His last start (tonight) was steller, going 7 IP with 1 ER. He has 24 IP now and 2.65 ERA with only 4 BB.
Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey
