In fairness to Strop the ball he deflected off his glove could have been a double play which could have lead to a very different end result. If he has any leash left it's probably very short.

What confuses me the most is why they didn't take advantage of this "DL" incident by sending him on a AAA rehab assignment to work out some of his kinks and more importantly prove he can return to pitching effectively. I know they did a lot of drills and simulated games to get him back on track in a controlled environment but I'm flabbergasted that they didn't take advantage of the "DL" stint to give him time at AAA.

I agree. S/have sent him away for a couple of weeks.

I thought the whole reason for putting him on the DL was to be able to send him there.

Same here. A wasted opportunity to get him down there without having to clear waivers.
