Yeah, Gast is probably up for awhile now. Good for him. Hopefully he continues to impress. He doesn't project as a front of the rotation guy, but he doesn't need to be quite that good up here anyway.
Westbrook had a setback yesterday as well. So, at least temporarily, we have another hole in the rotation. Wacha has been tearing it up in AAA, but we don't want to bring him up before he's ready. And, if we wait until June 1 (2 starts), he remains cost-controlled for an extra year. Since they brought Boggs back up yesterday (Why, I have no Idea), I'm thinking they are going to look to the bullpen for those starts. Kelly maybe? We're not in dire straits, but we have significantly less flexibility than we had 2-3 weeks ago.
