They won't miss Willie to make room for him.
Is he on waivers? Worth a shot. Also bring up Janish and send down Harris. If Stubbs continues to be this bad, send him down and bring up Frazier to help with the bench and OF. Ludwick is also iffy. In the words of Kel rom Kenan and Kel, "Ah....here it goes!"
