    Billings Starting Rotation

    "Joining Mugarian and Stephenson in the early-season rotation are right-hander Lucas O’Rear (13th round, 2010), righty Sal Romano (23rd round, ’11) and righty Drew Cisco (6th round, ’10)."

    Personally, the only surprise for me is seeing O'Rear starting.

    Drew Cisco has sort of gotten lost in all the shuffle, and its easy to forget that he is recovering from an injury. He had a lot going for him before the injury. Hope he can come back.

    O'Rear starting over Guillon is a head-scratcher.

    Also, I know they want to limit Langfield and Moscot's innings, but I wonder what the plan is for them- I wouldn't have been surprised to see Langfield start in Dayton.

    I just looked at his numbers. 23 years old in rookie league with more career walks than strike outs. He must have one helluva arm. Or him being in the starting rotation makes no sense to me.

    O'Rear could still be pretty raw. IIRC, didn't he play basketball at NIU? Didn't spend all his time on baseball.

    That's true. He was a tough guy to sign, too, so I'm wondering if there was some verbal agreement that he would be given a shot to start. Besides, there's a lot of money invested in him, so you want to give him as much experience as possible before you make the decision of whether to keep him or not. People's jobs go on the line when stuff like this happens.

    This is probably a long shot, but I'm thinking of going to one of the Mustangs games on Saturday the 30th. Anybody know who's slotted to start that game?

    At the current pace, the likely starter is Ismael Guillon, but don't be surprised if Lucas O'Rear is given another shot since he's the player Guillon replaced.
