Bryan Bullington has been recalled and will start on Wednesday, the Trib reports. Bullington didn't strike out even six batters per nine at Class AAA Indianpolis - he didn't even do it in the second half, when you'd think whatever post-injury struggles he might have had would be resolved - so his chances of success in the bigs are small. Then again, the Bucs are hurting for starters, and Zach Duke proved he wasn't ready with a weak rehab appearance Saturday, so why not try Bullington?
The Bucs also recalled John Van Benschoten and Dave Davidson, which, you know - whatever. Van Benschoten was just BP fodder in the Pittsburgh rotation earlier this year, and he probably always will be. Davidson had a middling year for Class AA Altoona but got very good results in a small sample after a recent promotion to Indianapolis, so maybe there's a chance he'll sneak in some good innings at the big league level before the hitters get wise.
