It opens the door for both Locke and Sanchez to join the Rotation, and also allows a guy like Jeanmar Gomez and possibly another reliever to join the 25 man. I would definitely recommend the Pirates start the year with 8 guys in the bullpen to join the 5 pitchers in the Rotation – shorting the position players is the best option at this point of the season.

What about Mazzaro?
