Happ Replaces Park

JA Happ will now get his opportunity. Chan Ho Park finally got put in the bull pen, a move I expected by June. I was hoping Happ would start in the pen and work his way up to starting and that is exactly what happened. Park is not the decent starter he used to be but will go back to pen, a place he was familiar with last season.

Happ went 2-0 with a 2.49 ERA in 12 appearances and Park started 7 games, going 1-1 with a 7.08 ERA. I believe both will excel in their new roles, especially when JC Romero returns in 15 games to take pressure off the entire bull pen. Having a long reliever like park will allow Scott Eyre to have a good compliment.

Park will be eligible to pitch in the bull pen on Wednesday and Happ will start versus the Yankees on Saturday, who are going to throw lefty veteran Andy Pettitte.
