Re: should Chapman, Leake, Wood pitch out of the pen in 2010?
Chapman, sure. At some point this year put him in the pen to limit his innings. He threw 125 in the 2008/2009 season, so he should probably be limited to something around 140-150 given the long layoff.
Leake threw 142 in college last season. Wood threw 167 in AA/AAA. They are better suited to handle a full seasons work load of 175 innings this season. No need to take them out of their comfort zone. The Reds have a ton of available, good options for the bullpen in 2010 that they don't need to worry about messing with a starter in the bullpen for April.
