I'm surprised the Sox haven't called up Jeff Gray. He's basically an AAAA pitcher, but he's got 115 appearances in at the major-league level and he throws more strikes than either of the two aforementioned bums.
Totally agree about Heath. Jeff Gray has a respectable E.R.A. down in Charlotte and has a lot more MLB experience than Heath. The only thing I can think of that is playing into their decision is that Heath is on the 40 man roster and Gray isn't. The other possibility is that Heath is another Cooper pet project. I was initially surprised that Omogrosso didn't get called up since he had a good spring and pitched respectably last year, but then I saw his AAA numbers this year and he is off to a dreadful start. (8.00+ E.R.A.)
