Dana Eveland, Steve Johnson, Brad Bergesen, Miguel Socolovich, etc. have all gone up and down (and in Bergesen's case to Arizona) and they continue to fill the bullpen with guys who are suited for 1 or 2 inning stints.
It really makes no sense to not have a long man in the bullpen when the only proven consistent pitcher in the rotation is Chen.
Britton just threw 40 pitches in the 2nd inning and is now at 59 pitches after 2 innings and Kevin Gregg was warming in the pen. It looks like it will be another game that they will be lucky to get 5 innings out of the starter.
