Well good common sense move.  Pedro wasn't going to be a major league pitcher.  I wonder if is his old team will even want him back.

So...why Wotherspoon?

Well he'll probably be sent right back down for Cobb, but you might as well get a more useful guy in the 'pen now instead of Araujo.

Wotherspoon is just as bad. 

He hasn't pitched in the majors yet. Had a nice spring. Here as a just in case until Cobb gets added.

Dude has been brutal in Norfolk. Hopefully it's a just in case.

He is just an arm for now. If he shows promise, then good. But there is no scouting report on him in the MLB and can be sent on his way shortly, without an issue. No need to bring up someone like Kline and bounce him around.

Exactly and Wootherspoon has had some success at AA and AAA and is a guy who can pitch multiple innings.  And once he gets sent down you can't bring him back up for 10 days.   So probably someone else will come up before too long.

I won’t rule out him being a major league pitcher.   The guy put up K rates over 10 every year in the minors, and 9.3 last year.   He needs more polish, but it’s still possible he could work his way back into a major league uniform in a year or two.

Wow.  Begs the question:  "Why now?"

I agree it seems pretty odd.   I guess the O’s decided he was marginal enough that it wasn’t worth stretching the other bullpen guys to cover his spot, based on how things have played out so far.

No reason he couldn’t be sent down right after game if he throws multiple innings today. Could save Yac from going down.
