BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2011-05-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)What's the reason why Robinson Tejeda was not considered more seriously for a rotation spot? He performed quite well at the end of the 2009 season. Is it purely due to durability concerns? Control issues?
(Bob from Seattle)
I've not kept up with the skinny on that from the KC media. He and Farnsworth and several others could probably do about as well as several of the guys in the current rotation. I don't know why management made the choices they did. Of course, this spring he was dealing with an injury. (Mike Fast)
