Jeff Samardzija’s Career In Jeopardy

By bullpenbrian at 02.11.2010 Leave a comment.

During his live chat this week on ESPNChicago.com, Bruce Levine confirmed what I’ve been saying for a long time.

-Many in the organization, including Samardzija, feel his progress has been hurt from going from the pen to the rotation.

I dedicated an entire post in August to this very topic. My point being the Cubs were jeopardizing Samardzija’s confidence at the Major League level by bouncing him between Triple-A and Chicago as a reliever.

Disrupting confidence is a career-threatening move for any young pitcher, and Samardzija is no exception.
