Samardzija Not in Rotation?

31

I saw this in a chat with Bruce Levine and I was wondering if I missed something along the way. I had not heard that Samardzija is no longer being considered for the rotation. If true, I guess this means that a right handed reliever is his ceiling at this point. Northside Mo (Chicago) Hey Bruce, what do you think about Samardzija not having a shot at the rotation? Seems like he made good progress in AAA last season with the intent of having a shot this season. Why cut it short? Bruce Levine (1:21 PM) I'm not a fan of how Samardzija has been handled. I think the Cubs showed they really don't have a handle on what his ability really is. And who he should be. This it the third or fourth change of job description for Samardzija. It's been a detriment to his ability to get better.
