Andy Pratt with Steve Blass disease? 

One of the better moves during John Hart's tenure as G.M. was getting Ben Kozlowski from the Braves in exchange for Andy Pratt.

However, with Kozlowski on the shelf due to T-J surgery, Pratt made it to the majors late last season, and was a contender for a bullpen role in Atlanta before being traded to the Cubs for Juan Cruz.

After starting the 2004 season with three awful outings out of the Cubs pen, though, Pratt was sent down to AAA, where he has continued to struggle. After today's outing, Pratt has posted the following numbers for AAA Iowa:

4 GS
9 IP
13 hits
17 runs
15 walks
8 strikeouts
3 WP

17.00 ERA

You almost have to hope that he's injured, because if he isn't, well...it is a problem that will be a lot harder to solve.
