Burres to pen, Sarfate to rotation

Yesterday Radhames Liz got the bus ticket to Norfolk and today Brian Burres gets bumped out of the starting rotation and into the_bullpen. Dennis Sarfate will take his spot in a bit of a shocker. I’m not going to criticize the move because Brian Burres has struggled for a long stretch here lately. I think Burres is a good arm in the pen and a good spot starter, but this is the second season he’s gotten a shot as a starter, and neither has panned out.

As for Sarfate, I think this is a short term deal. Sarfate has came into games and has been lights out but the next game, he has no control. He came up as a starter, so its not some hairbrained scheme like trying to start Chad Bradford. Hayden Penn will probably get the call up in the next couple of days since he’s pitching well.

 I wouldn’t be surprised to see a starter come to the O’s at the deadline. Nobody that great, but someone who’s been around awhile and can pitch some innings.
