The horrible saga that is the JD Durbin story is now at a new low.
“The Real Deal” has been sent to AA Reading from AAA Lehigh Valley. The 26-year-old went 0-5 with a 9.91 ERA in 26.1 innings for the IronPigs this season. Remember last year when he pitched a complete-game shutout against the Padres?
Suffice to say Durbin won’t be heading to Philadelphia anytime soon; meanwhile, JA Happ has a 2.72 ERA and a 55/23 K/BB ratio.
