I'm still in favor of trading him..
Trading him would be the ideal thing--but he alone won't fetch real pitching help.
And I'm not sure he's going to "develop" into anything more than what we saw last year--so a platoon wouldn't be the end of the world.
I'm hoping these are signals that DanO knows that WMP isn't going to be all that great--and can flip him for something.
