Happ Moved To Rotation

J.A Happ was moved to the starting rotation and Chan Ho Park was moved to the bullpen.

"I'm disappointed," Park said. "I lost the job as a starter, which is what I
wanted. I don't make the decision, but I lost the job. I've got a new job. I
have to figure out how to prepare to be good with the new job in the bullpen. I
have good memories of the bullpen last year. I know it's not easy, that's why I
don't like being in the bullpen. But the team expects more from me out of the
bullpen. I have to do my best."

Park could be available out of the bullpen as early as Wednesday. Happ will pitch Saturday against the New York Yankees.

We all saw it coming, it was just a matter of time. I'm looking forward to seeing what he can do.

Also, kudos to you for not making the "Chan Ho Park is not HAPP-y being sent to the pen." or "Something new is HAPP-ening to the rotation." headline/comment like 90% of the sports world.

thanks goodness that SOME adjustments are being made to this pitching staff.

What's left-
1) JC returns, Jack Trashcan is demoted or sent away
2) Carlos Carrasco makes his ML debut by replacing Moyer in the rotation when Moyer retires in August after winning his 250th game in his 15th try

Sergio Escalona hasn't been to shabby. Hopefully he can keep it up.
