Not sure why. But maybe they'll have him pitch since Beimel is terrible.

On a serious note. WHY? They have Atkins, Helton, Stewart. meh. Maybe Atkins got picked up and we dont know it yet.

Eh, there's nothing wrong with it.

1. He's not getting called up till rosters expand to 40.

2. He's not going to play that much; he'll be like the 2nd or 3rd lefty PH off the bench or something. You might see him PH in the 5th inning if the starter goes out early or something. And if he hits OK for a few AB, they give him more. He's no risk whatsoever, they're only keeping him for the September playoff chase, and he might even hit well and be a 6th bench guy for the playoffs as a PH.

He's not going to actually start any games; actually his "clubhouse leadership is probably more valuable than anything else he's being used for. They're only paying him the pro-rated major league minimum once he gets called up...
