Terry Francona said : "The one thing I told him was, ‘There’s a pretty good chance you’re gonna pitch, kid.’ We honestly don’t know where," "You could look at the schedule like I do. We have to fill some openings. Some of it’s going to be dependent on how far guys like Mejía, Quantrill, how far they go in a game. If they get to a point where we have to get them every five days, or with Mejía, there’s a pretty good chance we can bring him back a day early because he went 55 pitches. We’re gonna try to monitor that the best we can. So every night, I’m guessing Carl and I will sit there and try to put our heads together and the other guys will be in there and try to figure out where we are, just making sure we have everything covered" External link
