Comments on: Minor League Schedule: McDonald Gets Fourth Rehab Start On a Busy Night In Minors Your best source for news on the Pittsburgh Pirates and their minor league system. Sat, 22 Nov 2014 04:53:00 +0000 hourly 1 By: Patrick21301806 Tue, 11 Jun 2013 19:00:20 +0000 John,
In your opinion, what happens if James Mac continues to do terrible in his rehab starts? Unless he really shines I don’t see how he can even be considered to rejoin the Bucco starting 5 – unless the injury bug continues biting us big time. He seems completely lost. And with a lot of guys in our pen having logged many innings it seems the last thing we would want to do is have JMac on the mound starting. He has a bad habit being at 80-90 pitches by the 4-5th innings meaning our pen has to come in and clean up his mess. I doubt he would bring much of anything in a trade – so what do we do with this guy?
