While there isn’t an immediate need for a starter, the bullpen has been the weakest link on the team. Jocketty says the plan with Chapman does not involve using him in relief.
“Not right now,” Jocketty said.It sounds like there’s a better chance that Edinson Volquez could be looked at as reliever.
“I can’t answer that,” Jocketty said. “It’s a consideration. But we’re trying to groom him as a starter. We’ll see how he does on his rehab.”
