Twins Promote Mulvey
In what I would have to consider a bit of a shocking move, the Twins decided to promote starting pitcher Kevin Mulvey today, optioning Jose Morales back to Rochester. Mulvey came to the Twins in the Johan Santana trade and has pitched well considering his age and the Mets excessive rushing of prospects.
I canít say that I understand the decision at all. He can pitch long relief, and I have been told that he really seems to understand pitching. To me, that means starter, not reliever, so is something more going on?
Or, is this a simple way of trying to showcase Mulvey for a potential July trade?
Let me know what you thinkÖ are you as surprised as me?
