Duncan DFA; Coke's role change

More news from Sam Borden via Peter Abraham:

Shelley Duncan was designated for assignment resulting from the acquisition of someone named Mark Teixeira. Phil Coke was also told to prepare to work as a starter.

Duncan was fun to watch for about five minutes. But hopefully he'll catch on with someone else.

Coke pitched 12 games in relief at the end of the season, allowing only one earned run in 14 2/3 innings.

So Coke throws his hat into the ring for the fifth starter spot, along with newly-acquired Jason Johnson. If all else fails, he'll be a solid left-handed relief option.
