They should just release him, since they seem determined for him to never succeed. This is just asinine.

I’d want the best bullpen I could possibly have now (barring starting the arb clock on someone like Cole or Taillon). I mean, why possibly weaken the 2013 bullpen in order to maintain control over a reliever for 2018?

All kidding aside, the Brave series is going to take a lot out of this Pen, Morris and anyone else they can get up here is going to be needed, I don’t think Morris has to worry about getting his shot, he is going to get a lot of them soon. Until the starting rotation has all its parts in place the Pen is a priority. They will need Karstens, Liriano, Morton in a very short time. No Victor Black sightings yet, he might get his chance too.

Guessing can only bring one of the two up so guessing it would be Irwin unless they really prefer Morris and went with Oliver to spot start.

If they like his long-term potential, then they need to gain that year before calling him back up (and then let him stay in the majors).

No idea if that would happen but if McDonald is hurt that would be my prediction.

Merely semantics but I doubt Mazarro is in Pittsburgh that long. Really just need him a couple days.
