Again tonight DeVries had an average start - not terribly bad, but not terribly good either. Once again he battled gamely for 5 innings, keeping the Twins in the game, but ran out of gas in the 6th. Hendriks, on the other hand, pitched 7 solid shutout innings in Rochester and, the previous game he pitched being an exception, has done quite well.
Is it time to start thinking about switching them around - bringing Hendriks back up to the bigs and sending DeVries back to Rochester? I know he's a local guy and some are cheering for him because of that, but in all fairness he's only been borderline effective, and a big-league starter has GOT to be able to get beyond the 5th inning on a regular basis. Hendriks had his own rough patch when he started with the club up here, but for the most part he's done well in Rochester. Has he been there long enough to get what he needed to be ready for another shot?
What do you all think?
