Re: Matt Maloney or Micah Owings for the 5 spot?
Too soon for this IMO. Lets see if Volquez can return. After this stint he will have been on the DL for about a month so he'll need a rehab and a time to reprove himself. After that some one else may need to be sidelined. Maloney should get 3 or 4 starts before a decision is necessary. Owings pitched well on Friday too. Hard to tell anything from one start. Its good he wasn't rocked though.

Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS
