DateQuestionAnswer
2010-08-17 14:45:00 (link to chat)Given Jordan Lyles's success this year, do you think he figures into the Houston rotation next year?
(Lyles from Houston)
Well, if Brian Moehler has figured into their rotations recently, I don't see why not. Let him pitch in spring training, and take it from there. Maybe he isn't in the rotation at the onset of the season but he could be there by the summer. The Astros finally seem to understand what they need to do, and keeping someone that could develop more at the major league level, in the minors, is not progressive or helpful to the organization. Then again, he should be close to ready -- we don't want another Homer Bailey situation. (Eric Seidman)
