However, on the bright side of things, the starter for Sunday's game in still TBD, either Bush or Vargas will earn the spot (was the 5IP-4ER outing by Vargas last night enough to earn him that spot? I hope not...). I'm going to hold on to him, and maybe he'll even earn RP status in the meantime. How many appearances does he need to make out of the pen to get the wonderful "SP,RP" next to his name in Yahoo leagues?
Another glimmer of hope for Bush fans, bad news for Gallardo fans: "Whomever does not start the series finale(Bush or Vargas) would spend 11 days in the bullpen, Yost said, then would rejoin the rotation when Gallardo shifts to relief."
Right-hander Yovani Gallardo earned another start with a seven-inning stint against the Giants on Sunday, and will pitch Friday's series opener in Chicago. Ben Sheets will start Saturday, followed by Bush or Vargas on Sunday. Whomever does not start the series finale would spend 11 days in the bullpen, Yost said, then would rejoin the rotation when Gallardo shifts to relief. It's a move partially designed to protect the 21-year-old Gallardo's arm for later this season.
