Assume that Arroyo or possibly Harang gets moved in a deal. Also assume that Roenicke comes up to bolster the pen. Should the Reds convert Burton to a starter?
He's already shown he can get MLB hitters out. He is able to pitch multi-innings in relief and has done so effectively. Wouldn't he have more value as a starting pitcher? Could he effectively become a starter.
I'd vote for it. Would anyone else?
