I think that's part of the tenuous issue. He also needs to stay healthy (same with Eflin) throughout the season. The general rule seems to be once you go bullpen, you're not coming back. If both are in the Pen (or even just Pivetta), then you're left with de los santos (maybe ok?), Suarez (less exciting) or drew anderson (oy). It's hard to predict which is why I think there is caution.

Pivetta is almost definitely the better pitcher but also the better starter which means it's a bit of a gamble to move him this early in the season.

ultimately, I don't see how VV stays on the team as a starter.
