Should Braves give Roy Oswalt a call?
While Mike Minor was getting torched by the Fish last night, JJ was giving up 10 runs in Triple-A. You hope at least one of that pair rights himself, but other questions persist. Will Tommy Hanson remain healthy the whole season, and can Randall Delgado stay effective through September?
Yes, Julio Teheran has found his groove at Gwinnett, but he’s the only option down on the farm. You could move Medlen from the ‘pen but consider the impact he’s had in the late innings.
I’m sure the Braves won’t pay the price for a half-year of Roy Oswalt, but I’d feel a lot better about their chances if they did. Oswalt is on record as saying he’d like to pitch for the Braves. The 34-year-old righthander is only one year removed from pitching 211 innings, with 193 K’s and a 1.025 WHIP.
