Will the O's go to an 8-man bullpen until Pearce returns?

They want McFarland up, and they have to add Jason Garcia this week. Meanwhile Travis Snider is now redundant to Parra and has had only three hits since July 1.

I could see them replacing Wilson with McFarland today and then DFAing Snider to bring up Garcia. They would still have four outfielders plus Davis plus Paredes.

Then, when Pearce is ready to return, they would send down McFarland or Givens until the rosters expand on September first.

Ugh, i hate getting rid of a really good bullpen arm (Givens) to benefit a raw Rule 5 guy like Garcia. It definitely hurts us in terms of winning games this month.

I understand the long term reasons.......still don't like it though. :(

Well Garcia is replacing Wilson/Wright/Norris.

I hope not. Because 8-man bullpens are pointless. McFarland can go down when Garcia comes up. If they need an extra arm in the pen after Garcia is up, Givens goes down because he has options. That's why Hunter was traded.

Yes. I see that.

They don't even nee Mcfarland now most likely. He was brought out just in case Wilson only went a couple innings and they had to use Brach as the long man. That way they would have TJ for tonight. If they were playing at home TJ most likely never comes to Baltimore but being on the West Coast you can't decide at 1 am east coast time to try and call him to get on a plane to get out West so they just bring him along. They still may add him since he is here but unless Gonzo goes 5 or less we never see him.

I understand that they'd like to option Wilson to have another arm in the pen, but is it 100 percent certain that Tillman can make his next start? If not, I'd really like Wilson to make that start, and if we option him now he probably couldn't be recalled.

Tillman is supposed to go Wednesday, pushing everyone back. If they were to option Wilson and Tillman cant go Wednesday nor in 4 days they could just DL him to bring Wilson back.

I think they may wait and see how Tilman's side session goes and you could see Wilson sta up if they do think he may miss a start. If he looks ready to go then you can keep Mcfarland for these two games then Garcia up after that.
