It turns out that it will in fact be Greg Smith going for the A's tomorrow against the Jays. The 25-man spot will be opened by Justin Duchscherer hitting the DL with his biceps strain, which means that Smith will get at least one more start after this one. It's not yet clear how the 40-man spot is being opened. I still think the best way to go is to 60-day Eric Chavez. When's Kiko Calero due back? Maybe he could be 60-day'd.
Also, it appears that while I thought Rich Harden's injury had something to do with his back, it's actually his (cringe) pitching shoulder. Sigh. Really, that's all. Just sigh.
