It was bicep tendinitis, so hopefully the shoulder injury and bicep injury are behind him and he comes out gunning in spring training for a spot in the rotation.

Oh well, the BIG move of the 2012 mid-season was the acquisition of Wandy, the only significant talent of this whole bunch.

Considering McPherson’s recent should issues, and the fact that they view him as a future starter, I think it would be best for his arm if they didn’t constantly switch his role and expectations. I just see Locke as having more flexibility at this point in time.

I could see McPherson assuming the Brad Lincoln role in the pen and making spot starts. Hopefully his shoulder will hold up.

He could switch between long reliever and spot starter like Brad Lincoln did last year.

Notice our team was winning a lot before Lincoln was traded.
