WWYD: J.D. "The Real Deal" Durbin

As has been discussed here a couple of times Durbin is out of options this year and cannot return to AAA for another season. JD is a power arm that was once a top prospect that has fallen off considerably much like Boof Bonser had with the Giants.

The Twins will have quite a Decision to make this spring on what to do with him. He posted a 2.33 era this year although the walks that have plagued JD during his whole career were still there as he walked 50 in 89 innings. JD seemed to in line for a call up with all the ineffectiveness and injuries in the Twins rotation but he suffered an injury of his own and was out for the season. So now lies the question what would you do with JD Durbin?

My course of action would be to stick him in the number 5 spot in the rotation and see if he can get major league hitters out give him about 8-9 starts and see if he gets it done. This provides time to see how Slowey and Perkins are progressing and depending on what happens with Sliva, Baker could also get some extra time to build confidence in AAA and learn how to pitch.
