Nomo Eliminated from Rotation Bid

The Royals informed Hideo Nomo this morning that he is no longer a candidate for the starting rotation. He says that he's open to pitching in relief and the Royals will give him a chance now to win a spot in the bullpen. I can't see it happening though.

Bob Dutton is reporting that John Bale and Brett Tomko are the favorites right now for the remaining two open spots in the rotation. He also is saying that some club officials believe that Bale and Tomko are more valuable in the pen. I'd like to see Luke Hochevar win one of the rotations spots. And Kyle Davies certainly still has a shot as well. Dutton points out that De La Rosa is out of options and he probably wouldn't clear waivers, which sort of puts him in contention for the rotation by default.

Should be interesting to see how things shake out.
