Redman Activated

on .

Our worst nightmare has happened, Mark Redman has been activated from the DL and Brayan Pena optioned to triple-A Richmond. Redman will be pitching out of the pen to start, but this really puts pressure on Anthony Lerew to have a good outing against what will likely be Devern Hansack and the Red Sox. Lerew was very impressive in his first outing against the Padres, but after getting knocked around by the offense-deprived Pirates in his last outing there are doubts arising. Redman, who was sent to the DL due to an ingrown toenail that was affecting his push off the mound, has made one rehab start for Richmond, going 5.2 scoreless innings allowing 5 hits, 2 walks, and striking out 6. Seriously, you'd think Bobby would have learned that just about anyone is a better bet to keep this team in than Redman. We can hope that his ineffectiveness was due to the toenail but realistically we are looking at a 5+ ERA pitcher at best. We'll probably see a revolving door of starters at the back end of the rotation that I believe will inevitably end with Matt Harrison breaking into the Atlanta rotation mid-season or Schuerholz importing a big name starter.
