I don't mean to be nitpicky and rude but all the guys you listed barely pitched in their draft years (Wood pitched 7.1 innings, Prior didn't pitch at all and Willis pitched 28). Still, I agree that having Sale pitch in the pen should be beneficial to his short term health.

I really hope so. The Sox have rushed, albeit only two I can think of, prospects based on ST performance (Rauch and Logan) Also, I think he would begin his season in Charlotte if he does not make the rotation, considering that's where he would have pitched last this season.
