They really do need a left hander so I think Dumatrait will get his chance. That gives him an edge. Right now Arroyo is the only one of our starters who is not a power pitcher so they could use a junk balling lefty. The thing is, soft throwing lefties like Dumatrait tend to take awhile to succeed at the big league level. Look at guys like Glavine, Moyer and Randy Wolf.
