That's a VERY good question.
The Orioles have the same bullpen people back as last year-specifically Patton, plus a couple of lefties trying out. They really don't NEED Matusz in the pen at this point.For that reason, I think they can push quite awhile and give him a thorough trial as a starter where they have greater need.If he doesn't make it there, they can send him down to work on things if he has any options left.Does he??
I'm sorry, I'm wrong about the constitution of the O's bullpen. They don't have Gregg any more.
Don't think that matters though.
