Resop on rehab assignment

Braves right-hander Chris Resop began a rehabilitation assignment in Double-A Mississippi on Saturday.

Resop, on the disabled list with a left oblique strain, started the game against Mobile and was scheduled to pitch at least two innings.

The Braves placed Resop on the 15-day disabled list on June 16, one day after suffering the injury in his first appearance of the season. He was injured in a game against the Rays where he gave up five runs on five hits and three walks in a two-inning relief appearance.

Resop went 5-2 with a 1.84 ERA in 13 starts for Triple-A Gwinnett before being re-called to the majors when the team faced a deadline to put him on the major league roster, trade him or allow other teams a window to sign him.

Hopefully Resop can take Chavez’s place in the pen when he’s healthy?

Trade bait. Surely some team needs a veteran who has seen the bigs and did what Resop accomplished at AAA this year. Package with McClouth, Schaefer, and this kid we just got from Toronto (Collins) and go get Dejesus from KC.

Do you really think KC would give up their good hitting and good fielding OF for 2…count em….2 no-hit centerfielders…and a minor league pitcher? Come on man. I bet the people in KC got a real laugh with that idea…and are sure glad you aren’t their GM.

Not sure what to make of Resop. His numbers in Gwinnett didn’t match up with the Resop I remember, that threw 100 for an inning and had no secondary pitches, so obviously he did some serious work to become an effective starter. Then he looked awful the one game when they did bring him up, but that could have been nerves.

Guess there’s a tough decision to be made. Kawakami and Chavez are the low men on the totum pole, and Chavez has really gotten himself together. I kind of like the idea of having a spot starter/long reliever, which seems to me would be the role for Resop. And Kawakami strikes me as a rhythm guy – he’s said as much – so, assumedly, he wouldn’t be successful in that role (and looked like crap the other night).

Nobody would take Kawakami on waivers, so we’re paying him either way, but I think I might release Kawakami.

Wow, another, “let’s package all our garbage to [sorry team] for [one good player]” proposal. Never see those on the blogs.
