Royals make bullpen move; Bullington up: Marte down.

That is Bryan Bullington, a pitcher. Here's what the fantasy baseball gurus say:

Bullington, now 29 years old, had a 12.00 ERA over three relief appearances with the big club in May. The former 2002 No. 1 overall pick has a 2.82 ERA and 1.19 WHIP over 15 starts and five relief appearances with Triple-A Omaha this season, but he is unlikely to suddenly enjoy success on the big league level.

It's absolutely incredible that Marte has managed to stick around this long. He has allowed a grand total of 24 runs in 9 1/3 innings over 10 relief appearances this month, resulting in an obscene 23.14 ERA. He has an ever-so-slightly less awful 9.76 ERA over 22 total relief appearances this season.
