    It's Official: Todd Wellemeyer is the Giants 5th Starter

    Bruce Bochy on No.5 rotation spot, after Todd Wellemeyer pitched well again: "We'll have something to announce here real soon."

    He pitched great this spring training and definitely deserves the 5th starter spot. Hopefully he can eat some innings and keep his ERA below 5.

    Randy, i love the guy and he is probably my favorite pitcher i have ever seen play, but last year was a struggle to watch him pitch, he would have a good game, then get lit up the next. If Wellemeyer goes 10-8 ERA: 4.5 150 K 180 IP i will be more than happy

    He did earn it and should be the 5th starter. Pucetas has options and should be optioned to AAA where he can stay fresh and keep his endurance up. A long relief role would not help with that. If Wellemeyer falters, then bring up Pucetas.

    Congrats Wellemeyer!!! You earned it!

    Wellemeyer deserves it. I don't think he's going to be great, but we don't need a 5 starter to be great.

    yeah, I agree ... the term "serviceable" comes to mind when I think of guys like Wellemeyer. He'll do a decent job of keeping the seat warm for MadBum this season.

    180 innings of 4.50 ERA ball and 10-12 wins would be extremely nice. He looks to be a guy who can go 6 innings pretty consistently which saves bullpen innings.

    As many have said, Wellemeyer deserves this rotation spot...this is a new thing for the Giants a veteran that actually earns his playing time.

    I had no idea TW got invited and has now pitched 20 innings of solid ball. I really like him as the 5th starter, he was very decent 2 seasons ago in STL

    Bruce Bochy said he'll announce No.5 starter tomorrow, although Brian Sabean named Wellemeyer while talking about the staff. Fait accompli.

    It's official.

    we arent comparing wellemeyer to randy, we're comparing him to sanchez in the first half when he had an era over 5. besides sadowskis's two shutout games, we didn't get anything out of the 5th spot until penny came along in september. so there is def. some room for improvement on the staff, and hopefully wellemeyer holds up.
