  1. It’s about time we got Kevin Cameron back up to the big league club. He would be a great sixth or seventh inning option since Gonzalez, Ledezma, and Rusch are all mop up guys who don’t get any important innings. At the current rate Meredith, Thatcher, and Bell are in for about 250 innings this year.

    Free K-Cam!

  2. OT- Any info regarding the health of Justin Hampson? There is another guy I miss watching pitch.

  3. 1: Agree in principle, although Cameron’s control problems could bite us hard. No bullpen, least of all a 7 man pen, needs 3 long men. Hampson’s a long reliever without the strikeouts to be used in high leverage situations, but at least he’s been effective in the recent past.

    I expect fairly quick replacement of relievers. Bass, Guevara, Cameron, and Hampson will replace some or all of those long men at some point. Guevara and Cameron all have the K numbers to take some load off Meredith/Bell/Hoffman. Bass might, he’s hardly been used as a reliever in the minors.

  4. A few notes of interest from this UT article from a few days ago …

    … specifically, Latos “threw a lot of pitches” in an extended spring game last Thursday and is to join Ft Wayne …
