Convert Moskos back to a starter?

With all of the upcoming roster crunch issues the Bucs will face when players return from injury, I feel as though the Moskos situation has been on the backburner. Some people are saying when Beimel comes back maybe Moskos will be the guy sent back down, which is fine he's been so-so with us since coming up I get that. My question is, why not try and develop him as a starter again? Watching him pitch in relief he gets low to mid-90's and throws a decent breaking ball. Does his velocity magically drop to 88 once he pitches more than 2 innings? It just seems to me like even if he becomes a solid lefty bullpen guy, LOOGY types are out there all the time. He doesn't have much value to us as a reliever so why not try to get him to the Bucs in the rotation? We seem to have lots of SP options right now in AAA, as well as the aces in the low minors so we have pitching to come. If he ends up expendable, fine. Am I totally wrong here, is this not an option anymore? 

 

For the record, I think converting Moskos back to a starter is much more reasonable than saying that for Hanrahan, so I'm at least more informed than the idiot national columnist that suggested that in his recent column!
