    I'm guessing this is a rehab start for him, don't know for sure. I would hope he is not viewed as a AA player at this point...but I don't know.

    The irony in this for me is that I saw him pitch a rehab start here for the Mudcats two years ago when the Mudcats were a Florida AA affiliate. While with Detroit, Miller was traded for one of the most successful Mudcats of all time, Miguel Cabrera. The guy is back but sitting in the 'other' dugout this time. I'm thinking Miller may not be the guy he was projected to be back when.

    These bullpen meltdowns have me wondering about a health update on some guys who could help. Bill Bray, Jared Burton and Mace Thurman. Particularly interested in what the deal is with Thurman. I missed the details on his injury.

    Guy has a 4.76 ERA, he doesn't need a promtion yet. Valiquette has huge guns. Just doesn't look "pitcher-like". Anyone else see that? Muddie?

    I have no idea about whether or not Leake has a set season innings quota. I just sort of hope so. Maloney threw more innings in their regular seasons, but Leake did pitch after a long layoff for 19 and 2/3 in the Arizona Fall League.

    Volquez would be a nice replacement for Leake's spot in the rotation, too. I guess with the discussion of Maloney being put in the Reds' rotation, I was thinking of the best candidate to be replaced rather than who would be the best candidate to take an opening. I hope the starters recent run of success keeps up and we don't have any quality related issues and we can be talking about innings quotas.

After a brief discussion with Negron, Bell and Mattocks (manager and trainer), rush out to the mound. After some discussion Thompson and company head for the dugout. I believe this is a foot injury rather than an arm issue.
    That's a relief.

    Probably not for at least another year and a half or another major injury, whichever comes first.

    Thompson isnt on the 40 man so its not like they are exactly in a rush to make that choice also. Hes also still only 24 which honestly is pretty young all things considered.
