Tim Alderson has gotten off to an excellent start in the Altoona bullpen, posting a .84 ERA, .938 WHIP, and 9.3 K/9 in 21 IP so far this season. When (if at all) should the Pirates consider moving him back into the rotation? It is obviously very early in the season, and 21 IP is a very small sample, but with how well he has pitched so far the idea of moving him back into the rotation has to be under consideration at some point I would imagine.
Also, I have not had a chance to see him pitch (and have not noticed any scouting reports on him this year) so if anyone knows how he is looking the information would be greatly appreciated. Do the results he has gotten so far look legit, or more like a fluke?
