Novoa and Regas return, but perhaps in new roles

The Revs welcomed back Kris Regas and Yunior Novoa for the 2013 season, but Revs manager Mark Mason said both could be used differently than they had been in 2012.

Regas (3-2, 2.79 ERA) worked as a high-stress reliever in 2012, but had success. In his 44 appearances, he posted 35 scoreless outings.

Mason will give him an opportunity to be a starter this season.

Novoa (2-6, 4.71 ERA) worked as a spot starter and long man in 2012, but he had his best success as a weapon out of the pen. He posted a 2.84 ERA in 33 relief appearances. Mason liked his work as a long man, but believes he may be better suited as a one-inning reliever — a lefty who can pitch on back-to-back days.

The Revs also learned that reliever Ricardo Gomez (4-1, 2.66 ERA, 17 saves) has signed with a club in Mexico. A “big loss” for the Revs — according to Mason — there is still a lot of time before the Revs open camp, and some curious decisions are often made with foreign players in Mexico.
