Not sure if Brennan Boesch’s day at DH has anything to do with last night’s game, but Ryan Raburn is getting the start in right field.

I’ll bring this over from the other thread. Schlereth is the question, how he is used needs to be figured out. IS he a lefty specialist only? Or does hee need to go a couple innings? Because I see 2 pretty good leftys in our pen (Below and Coke). If, and only if, he is used to get out left handed hitters, Schlereth is useful. If Leyland thinks (as was the case lsat night) that Schlereth can get and inning plus of outs against a good hitting team, then he for sure needs to go to AAA and work on another pitch.

Just my $0.02

I agree. AAA or lefty specialist.

Right now I’d say we would benefit more if he were AAA.
In the realization of time as it pertains to JL–he will let Schlereth bomb out once more before he is sent away. The problem with that is often a guy will come up with a good inning or big out or big hit and then JL starts the demotion clock all over again. I figure Inge’s game winning home probably buys him time to the All Star break now.
We need to get our young studs, Boesch and Avila, making more of a contribution. AJ also needs to refind his stroke that the had going too.

Good to have you back Jason! I’d forgotten how much I rely on your blog to keep me up to date until you take time off and I feel out of the loop for 3 days!

If/when Fister is ready to be activated, then Schlereth needs to be sent down to work on his location of pitches. He’s too predictable right now to be up in “D”!!
I don’t think we can wait until May to send Schlereth down to AAA.
