According to this reporter that should be a consideration...

Seems to me like she's saying he should be resting NOW, rather than DL'ed for the regular season.

Either way, I think it's a dumb argument. If he feels up to pitching, let him pitch.

He looked pretty damn good yesterday against the Indians. So long as he's taking it easy between starts, looks to me like he's ready!

I agree. If I've learned nothing else since Arroyo has been here, it's always trust in Bronson. He always takes the ball and in 27 out of 30 starts, he gets the job done.

I would in a heartbeat.

No way I would DL him. You would lose one of your top arms for the first two weeks of the season. It's not like you risk aggravating an injury if you pitch him. Worst case is that he misses a start, but DLing him makes him miss 3 starts.
