Bullpen Thoughts

Where is KC headed with the bullpen?

First of all, Tejeda is nearing a return; hopefully Trey will decide to at least try him in more meaningful roles. Who is the odd man out when he returns? Is it Colon? Wright? Will they do something really bold, such as release or trade Mahay? My guess is it will be Colon, but I wouldn't mind if it was Wright instead.


What happens with Ponson once he rehabs and his 20 days are up? No way he replaces anybody in the rotation, or do you think he should replace either Davies or Hochevar? If not, do you see him filling a role in the bullpen? Personally, I don't think he is suited for that role AT ALL. If it were me, I'd ask him to pitch in Omaha, and if he balks, release him.

 

Saw where Chris Hayes has pitched 5 and 4 innings in his last 2 appearances in AAA. Pretty sure they are doing this just to get an extended look at him, and do not see him as a potential starter. Does this strike you as a sorta "fast tracking" of him, with the thought being maybe they are considering calling him up later this year? After all, he is 26 already. His unique style and singular skill (extreme GB pitcher) could be very attractive (OK, maybe not with our infield defense!). Sorta seems like he could be being groomed to take Wright's place as the staff GB specialist.
