Nieve to the Bullpen

The tale of Fernando Nieve's nose keeps growing. Nieve who had troubled pitching in Colorado Springs due to asthma and high altitude is being moved to the bullpen for the remainder of the season because of a deviated septum. Apparently, the deviated septum has been causing Nieve to have trouble sleeping. The lack of sleep has cut down on his stamina to go deep into games as a starter. Hence the bullpen move for this season, surgery in the off-season and then reassess in 2009.
