Not saying Frare is the answer either but it might make more see to keep running him or another kid out there to see what they have in what figures to be another lost season.

On the other hand as dismal as the start has been and as bad as the bullpen has been maybe they are looking for someone, anyone to stabilize things at least for the short term.
Might also be right move for Frare's development. Let him practice and improve in games that matter less and not have it become a spiral.
