HelenaEngineer Posted August 2, 2016 Share Posted August 2, 2016 I think Reimold is safe and needed to back up Jones with Rickard out, so we add one to the bench and drop a pitcher. Hopefully, Miley will ease the strain on the long relievers. Despaigne has simply not been effective enough, and his high walk totals to go along with more hits than innings pitched are a problem. The reason I would send Wilson down is completely different. There is a good chance the Orioles will need Wilson or Wright to make some key starts in late August or September. If Bundy hits an innings limit or struggles or Gallardo continues to pitch as badly as he has recently, then something will have to be done. Wilson would be better positioned to fill that role if he goes down and has 3-4 solid starts. He has been better than Wright this year and is the most likely candidate to take those starts if they are needed, which is a distinct possibility.
