Molitor said after his start that they weren't making any changes in regards to the status of Gibson, so he's clearly back in the rotation.

 

They'll have to make a roster move to get Mejia back, though.  Barring a new injury, my guesses are:

 

1) Wilk DFA'd

2) Vargas optioned

3) phantom injury to put Haley back on the DL

If they option Vargas I'm filing a congressional.

wait, they will send Mejia down?He did better than Gibson.I'd argue he deserves to stay up, not Kyle.

No, they both have to stay up.  They are starters #4 and #5.

 

But Mejia is currently down (he was the 26th man for Sunday's doubleheader) so they have to make room for him before his next turn.

Personally, I could see letting Duffey and Gibson tackle Saturday, then optioning Gibson after the game for Mejia and letting Duffey assume Gibson's rotation spot.  But that's just me. :)
