From Adam McCalvy "

Why didn't Paolo Espino pitch as scheduled today? After asking around, I think this falls into the category of "stay tuned."

If he is coming up to Milwaukee, i wonder where he would go. I don't see a rotation spot for him, and i can't see him pitching long relief. Maybe there was more to the Marinez DFA than I thought.

CC just announced Wily to the pen, so one would assume that Espino will be up to bridge the gap between now and the time Guerra is ready to join the team.

Guerra is about ready to join rotation. Wily just moved out presumably to make room for Guerra. Would espino come up to go into bullpen? Weird and wild stuff.

Peralta moved to the bullpen on Rosiaks tweet. Sorry can't link right now. Best news in a while

I thought Junior was making one more start in Biloxi?

Yep gotta think Espino is gonna get one shot on Friday. If they like what they see who knows? But I'm super stoked to see Peralta in the pen. Actually been been beating this dead horse for the last year in a half. I think he'll have a hell of a lot more value as a high leverage reliever.

Never heard of this guy before and was pretty surprised how I could have missed a Brewer pitching prospect. Looked him up to see he's a 30 year old who's never made the majors. I understand so was Guerra and Espino's minor league numbers look decent but I'm guessing he's just another part of the revolving door bullpen this year.

I guess we are about to find out if the new market inefficiency is over 30 career minor league pitchers.

Here's a good piece on Espino from BP Milwaukee back in March:

I'd guess he gets one start and then is kept as insurance in case Guerra has a short first outing.

Could be but then they will have to send somebody else to the minors to make room for Guerra. Based on past moves Suter is likely to go back down but if they like Espino as a starter maybe Davies is optioned if he doesn't turn it around.

Good thing Stearns and Counsell read this board [wink] Wily to the pen is long overdue. Hopefully he can salvage his career there.

I still like Wily. I wish they had broken him in via the pen. I've long wanted to break in more pitchers via the pen to give them success and learn to attack hitters. Wily has always struggled with off-speed consistency (although it's far better thus far in 2017), and the pen would allow him to really learn the nuances of retiring big leaguers. I hate to give the Cards any credit, but they've turned middling prospects into legit starters with this as part of their method.

I'm of the same mind. That was something that used to be more common. My theory as to why they don't any more is teams don't want to waste a year of control for for so few innings.

There needs to be a King Thames version of the bible.

Peralta was handled properly. His best years were early. Fastball+slider is just a RP toolkit. He had to gain faith in his curve or change to ever make it work as a starter.

Thurston, I think that's right. But I'd rather give a kid 75 games to work on things than 25-30 starts. It's different for every kid, but we always could tell Wily didn't attack hitters despite great stuff

Thanks for the article link. This makes me intrigued to see what this guy can do. Clearly a plan here to try find another older prospect Guerra type. If he performs they can find a place for him in the rotation.
