Mike Leake headed to the bullpen

Cincinnati Reds pitcher Mike Leake will be moved to the bullpen to make space in the starting rotation for Johnny Cueto who is set to make his season debut Sunday against the Cubs.  Reds manager Dusty Baker said he see's Mike Leake as the long man now out of the pen.

If you own Leake in any of your fantasy leagues, you should drop him now, as he will not be getting any starts, and wont pick up any saves out of the bullpen, so he really has no value to your team anymore.  Take a look at whose hot and most likely available in your league.

In 2011 Leake is 3-1 but has an ERA of 5.77, with 31 K's to go along with 34 hits and 11walks in 34.1 innings pitched for a WHIP of 1.31
