Yea but if you think about it, he probably gets 1-2 rehab starts. Even if it’s just one, that’s a start and then 4 days off. So that’s 5 days right there. He wasn’t going to miss just another 9 days on top of that. Figure he starts working off the mound within a week, then he goes on a rehab assignment in late June/early July, has one or 2 starts and then the AS break is here.
Possible he pitches in a game before the break but they could just give him more time and wait until after.
Just hope he gets in a few good starts before July 30th and then they can decide whether trading him or not is on the table.
