Pelfrey won't get call

Well, it seems that after all of the hoopla over Mike Pelfrey possibly starting on thursday Alay Soler will get the call instead. Soler was pitching better than Pelfrey in AA, however his stuff is obviously not on the same level as Pelfrey. Soler combined for a 1.53 era between A and AA thus far this season while going 3-0, and he has "big league experience" pitching in the Cuban League a few years back. Soler's name was mentioned in SPring Training as a possible dark horse to make the bullpen, but in his 3.1 innings of work Soler allowed an incredible nine runs, eight earned. Soler is expected to start on Thursday against a s trong Philidelphia lineup.
