    Default Meek to the DL, roster move coming

    Dejan is reporting that Evan Meek is likely to be placed on the DL to build some arm strength back up. He was very sick early in the year and tried to pitch through it, but they think it really drained him, so he's going to take some time off.

    He speculates that the corresponding move could be to bring up Danny Moskos, who is off to a solid start at AAA this year. I wouldn't be surprised if they went with someone with MLB experience, though. Chris Leroux is the only one on the 40 man, but they could easily just dump him from the roster and replace him with someone else.

    At least we can know for sure it won't be Steven Jackson!

    Dejan says maybe Moskos... I suspect it will be Garret Olson.

    I would like it to be Moskos. He could get his feet wet with some low leverage situations while Meek is on the DL. Moskos has a little history of not performance well in his first try at a new level...maybe he could get that out of the way this time so when he comes back he's ready.

    They have an open spot, but they'll almost certainly use someone on the 40 man roster. Personally, i'd like to see another lefty of some sort.

    I don't think they would use that spot on a player they DFA'ed 2 weeks ago.

    I think this is a good move. The way the bullpen has shaped up with Resop and Veras being lights out most of the time actually takes some pressure off of the other spots, so Moskos won't have to really be thrown in the fire right away. They can let Moskos get his feet wet in some lower pressure situations and see where he is from there.

    It would be nice to see Moskos finally make it. Hope he does well and sticks here, especially after the criticism when he was signed. When Meek gets back and if Moskos stays, who is the odd man out?

    And not to steal this thread, but what happens when Ohlendorf finishes his rehab? (Read where he is close). Who's place does he take?

    What a great position to be in. The Pirates have too many pitchers.....who would have thunk it?

    Crotta at the moment looks to be on shaky ground but this could all change in a minute. Lost in all of this is Daniel McCutchen....he has pitched great.

    Without really saying too much Huntington kind of indicated that it will most likely be Crotta or Moskos. He said something like "Maybe it will be one of those rare occasions where the guy comes up and sticks right away, but a lot of pitchers bounce between AAA and MLB once or twice before it clicks."

    Very true and more of it to come once some of the youngsters take their turns. I'm really drinking the kool-aid on the Pirates and will enjoy the ride up as much as I agonized over the ride down.
