J. P. Howell May Start Season With the Bulls

48 days to start of the season (@ Gwinnett)
55 days to the home opener (April 14)

Way back in the dark ages — that would be the 2007 season — the Bulls had a pretty good starting left hander named J. P. Howell. It was Charlie Montoyo's first season as manager. Pretty good batch of pitchers with Jeff Neimann, Mitch Talbot, Jason Hammel, Jeff Ridgeway, Andy Sonnanstine, and my personal favorite, reliever Seth McClung.

Down in St. Pete, J.P. became a reliever and did well in 2008 and 2009 (stats) but shoulder problems took him out of the game in 2010.

Which leads to the report that we may get to see him on the mound a couple of times this year. Hope so, because it would mean that he's on his way back.
