Matt explores the Eulogio De La Cruz promotion. I hadn’t thought much about it, but maybe they are giving him a whirl as a reliever at the higher level to see if he can be added to the bullpen. His starter numbers are better than as a reliever, but his stuff can be impressive regardless.
TigsTown notes that Vincent Blue was released and Vance Wilson is about to start rehabbing at Lakeland.
