Are we to read anything into Mike Leake pitching 3 innings in relief today?

Might he be moved to long man, 6th starter?

Looks like Chapman is able to make it twice thru the lineup with only the 2 pitches and get into the 6th. I'm sort of thinking Walt should go with that. He has a good chance of taking the game into or thru the 6th giving up very little. I'll take that every 5 days.

It's probably just to get him stretched out more.

No way leake is a reliever. He was arguabely our 2nd best starter last year, and ended the year pitching pretty darn good. He should get the 3rd spot but Ill bet the farm he gets put in the 5 spot to start the year.

And they shut him down last year so he would possibly be able to go 200 innings this year
