Dave Trembley indicated today that he and pitching coach Rick Kranitz have talked about the possibility of going with a six-man rotation in September, which is great news for those of us who thought they were having trouble coming up with three.
They'll get an infusion of talent on Monday and there are several pitchers at the Double-A and Triple-A level who have earned consideration, most notably Bowie 15-game Bradley Bergesen (right), whose name kept coming up while the club was shuttling in starters over the past few weeks.
Trouble is, Bergesen and many of the pitchers everybody is curious about are not on the 40-man roster, which complicates the situation, since there are a few position players in the same boat. The top non-roster candidates are Bergesen, David Hernandez, Andy Mitchell, Jason Berken and Jon Leicester, but I can't imagine you'll see more than a couple of them.
My take: I've been itching to get a look at Bergesen for weeks, but the club may feel he has thrown enough pitches this season. Trembley already has said Kam Mickolio will rejoin the bullpen and wouldn't be surprised to see Bob McCrory, since he is on the 40-man.
Now it's your turn. Who do you want to see? And don't say Chris Tillman because Trembley just said he won't be here this year and probably next year either.
