Reports today say the Sox are sending Masterson down to groom him as bullpen help.Not so sure I agree with the move,although the pen has had it's struggles.There must be other options.

I think it is a bit of a risk since he has done so well as a starter. If Buchholtz struggles and Colon can't come back, then I'd get Masterson back into the rotation. If either of those guys can do well as a starter though, then Masterson could help a struggling (at times) pen and reduce his innings for the season.
