Max Scherzer to the big club

kishi posted this link in the gameday thread and SongBird broke the news. I thought that it deserved it's own fan post.

The two thoughts from Nick's article that I agree with are posted below.

Maybe they’re going to move him into the rotation and bump Edgar Gonzalez back to that swing role in the bullpen? That, to me, would seem like the most likely move.


But I think it’s important that he continues to develop as a starter. They might need him in the rotation next year or maybe even later this year. Having him throw inconsistent innings out of the pen isn’t going to allow him to further develop his change-up and slider. It’s not going to get his innings total up to the point where he could throw 180 innings if he’s in the rotation next year.
