As I indicated earlier in the thread, I think Petricka and Webb might both be in line for a September callup. Both have been pitching well out of the pen in Charlotte. Webb hasn't given up an earned run in over a month.
Those are legitimate prospects. We aren't going to call them up until September.
But there are many other minor leaguers we can try out for bullpen duty, including Castro.
The comparison to Bukvich is a good one. Hated may not be the right word: I'm think inept or pathetic.
