Poll: Should the Padres send Matt Strahm to the bullpen?

New, 35 comments

Strahm was excellent out of the Pen’ last year

MLB: San Francisco Giants at San Diego Padres Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

The Padres bullpen struggles have been a hot topic all year. They’re still searching for answers as we enter July. Matt Strahm was one of the arms that made last years bullpen so strong. Brad Wieck, one of 2 lefties (when Erlin is up) in the bullpen, has struggled mightily. If the Padres decide to remove Strahm from the rotation, Wieck and Erlin would become expendable. It may be the most logical and effective play considering the return of Dinelson Lamet.

What do you think folks? Do the Padres let Strahm work out the kinks in the rotation? Or, do they have him settle into a similar bullpen role as last season?
