The obvious solution is to nurse Beachy back along via the pen, though the dearth of lefties out there might indicate Paul Maholm as the better pen arm (Alex Wood notwithstanding.) Or, you could just go six man rotation.
What you absolutely can’t do is demote either of Minor, Medlen or Teheran out of the rotation.
But isn't the history of ligament replacement guys somewhat dubious in their first year back? I probably would do Beachy in the pen with a few spot starts when viable.
This doesn't seem hard. Put Teheran in long relief until somebody gets hurt.
They should just put Hudson on the disabled list with a bad case of "being the sixth best starter on the team."
There will probably be a trade.
Nuke it from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.
Who? For what? Tim Hudson is 10-5 and a fan favorite. He ain't going anywhere. They're not dealing any of Minor, Teheran, Beachy or Medlen. I guess that leaves Paul Maholm by default?
Seriously, I'd go to the six man rotation and tell the starters they're expected to get through 7.
If you're going to send someone to the pen - and it appears they are - it ought to be the guy who has been out and needs to build up.
Is Teheran on an innings limit?
The obstacle is WTF are you going to find 9 guys who can give you 150+ IP a year, and stay healthy pitching every 3 days? That system would likely beget an injury train wreck on your staff.
Not to mention, capping the output of your absolute best arms at 150 IP, when they can probably give you 250 (if the modern nonsense is loosened a little).
That's what I'm saying.
