nope. You can't judge such things based on how a guy does in the last inning with his team up nine runs (though he didn't give up a run). You base it on their most likely role in a tightly contested game. In Arrendondo's case, it's serving as a very short bridge between starter and our three best relievers. That's not a role you'd suddenly invent for your fifth starter. If Leake had made the roster, it'd have been at Simon's expense.
