Don’t think it is a problem as we haven’t heard anything. He may just be pushed back a day to get the rotation squared away. They lost Waldrop to the DL, Cumpton pitched yesterday, Irwin returned, so lots of changes have happened quickly

The big issue for him seems to be walks and getting into the 7th or even 8th inning. Really though, it’s obvious how those two aspects of his game work in tandem. Less hits than innings pitched, a BAA around .200, and only 1 HR in about 25 innings tells me that he’s not having trouble throwing the ball where he wants…he just needs to throw it where he wants to more consistently. I think he’s really close, and if he’s starting to get passed his learning curve at the AAA level, a good month of May could put him in Pittsburgh in June.
