Dan Meyer Struggling

I know, I know only two games, but the boy is stuggling big time.  First two games:

Game 1: 3IP, 8H, 5R, 3ER, 1BB, 1K, 2HR
Game 2: 5IP, 8H, 7R, 7ER, 1BB, 1K, 1HR

So, in two games, he's got a 11.25 ERA with a total of 2K's.  Yikes!  Has anybody seen him yet?  Anybody know anything that would explain this (ie, he's working on a new pitch or something?).  Atlanta has a long history of fleecing other teams and this doesn't look good so far.  If nothing, it means he's probably in AAA for the year unless he absolutely dominates the 2nd half.  

So, here's a question.  If Saarloos struggles or his elbow problems return (highly likely), who steps into the rotation?  Rheinecker?  Etherton?  Serrano?  I imagine it would be Etherton, but I've never been a big fan.  Would much prefer giving Juan Cruz another shot at starting.  The dude's stuff if filthy.  So, share your thoughts on who'd you want and who you think the A's would use (might be different).
