I went to that game. It was supposed to be Peavy's start and they did one of their little "skip a start to save his arm for later" things. It was the only game I made it to last year, and they got crushed.

Default Zach Stewart is back?

Looking at a conversation on the Ranger's twitter and we got Stewart back...maybe this is old news?

Doesn't mean much as if he's on our club up here we are in trouble.

Coop will fix em!

He's been outrighted to AAA so he will not take up a spot on the 40 man roster.

That's what Rick Hahn said at the Friday night SoxFest seminar. During the Q&A session he was asked pointedly why Stewart was brought back (to the accompaniment of agreeing groans from the crowd), and he nodded, acknowledging what everybody was thinking. But he explained that having another arm with MLB experience in the back of the rotation at AAA is simple insurance, and in this case it was at minimal cost.

I don't think we'll see Stewart up here either unless there's some bizarre series of injuries to the pitching staff. Insurance is something you hope you never have to use.

Agreed. Around July, Stewart and a few other middling players can go to the
Cubs to acquire Edwin Jackson and cash. I like this.

I actually thought Stewart was going to turn into a solid pitcher for us when we first acquired him. I'll be the first to admit I was WRONG, but it never hurts to have depth at AAA.
