Isn't that a pretty common story on a year-to-year basis in baseball, as well as an historically proven system within this very franchise?
Who has spent 4 years in the bullpen (their entire major league career minus a start or two), then come back to be a reliable major league starter? Dont think its happened much, certainly dont think it's a "proven system". Didnt research it though
