    How long does Pelland stay in AAA? He spent two years in AA, but you’ve got to think with the bullpen struggles the past couple of years, if he continues to K a batter per inning, he’ll see major league action sooner rather than later? Though I still can’t understand why he spent so long in AA.

    Looks like to the bullpen full-time, yes. Though, 2006 was the only year he made every appearance in the rotation.
