Mark Bowman of MLB.com writes that the Braves plan to discuss whether to move Kris Medlen into the starting rotation.
It’s one of many scenarios being discussed by the Braves, who have lost eight straight games. In order to move Medlen to the rotation, the Braves would likely have to send him down to Triple-A Gwinnett for a couple weeks in order to get him properly stretched out. The 26-year-old right-hander has a 3.49 ERA and and 17/7 K/BB ratio over 28 1/3 innings out of the Braves’ bullpen this season, but he showed plenty of potential as a starter prior to undergoing Tommy John surgery in 2010. The Braves have not made a firm decision on his future, but Mike Minor and Randall Delgado are most vulnerable to lose their rotation spots.
