Homer to AAA? the pen?? Arroyo to the Angels???

How about this: Arroyo goes to the DL for 2 weeks while his carpal tunnel syndrome calms down. Both Homer & Owings start the season in the rotation. We then get two looks at them in real games against 100% major league hitters. Then I think the decision on who the odd man out in the rotation is becomes a bit easier.

There has been some speculation here (its been a long spring training) about the Reds dealing pitching for a hitter (OF/SS). Arroyo seems the main guy people would deal in the right trade. I for one would feel a LOT better about something like this if I had some evidence that Owing's & Homer's recent strong pitching was not just a spring training mirage.
