Combined with some of his relief work and this one start is a step in the process...If he comes out in this 1st start and totally bombs, you know its time to find a replacement very very soon...if he pitches ok or higher, you got some more time to worry about that spot...


If he comes out of his start with an ERA better than Gorzo's, should we then take Gorzo out of the rotation? One start just isn't enough.

In your support, we do have his six starts with the Reds last year. On the other, we have his minor league performance. I'd give him a pass on last year based on rookie nerves and give him at least as many starts as Morris had. It's not like Indianapolis is loaded with hot prospects who are breathing down his neck.

I guess what I mean is, one start will give you an idea if he is ready for that spot...He can still have a bad game and show signs he's there, but if he flat comes out and bombs and does nothing at all right, its time to search the Yellow Pages for Pitching...

Fair point. Dumatrait's pitching does not have to be evaluated only by looking at the results.
