I read that he has had extreme stiffness etc and he may be out for a little. Anyone hear anythign like that? Whats the news? Who will back him up? Fuentes has been pretty crappy thus far, so I am not sure.


*edit: I think its actually his right shoulder thats hurting.

Looks like the article basically answers it....
Left-hander Brian Fuentes and right-handers Scott Dohmann and Ryan Speier are possible choices.

Speier 1.17 ERA, sub 1 Whip, 7.2 IP
Fuentes 7.2 ERA, 1 whip, 5 IP
Dohmann 3.12 ERA, 1+ whip, 8.2 IP

thus far.

Last year,
Speier: Did not play in the majors
Fuentes: 44.2 IP, 5.6 ERA
Dohman: A handful of innings, 4.2 ERA


I like Speier as the backup anyway... if Tsao can't play, do you think he'll take over?

Right now it looks like it would be Speier but from what I read this is minor stiffness not extreme.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Yet one more reason to adhere to fantasy baseball's most reliable truism...never draft any Colorado pitcher. Ever.

Speier's minor league stats, for any interested:

2001 R-CASPER 3.16 ERA 1 save 25.2 IP 24 K's
2002 A-ASHEVILLE 3.93 ERA 1 save 36.2 IP 39 K's
2002 A-SALEM 3.94 ERA 4 saves 32.0 IP 33 K's
2003 A-VISALIA 1.53 ERA 18 saves 58.2 IP 73 k's
2004 AA-TULSA 2.04 ERA, 37 saves, 61.2 IP, 70 K's

26 years old, only played double A ball. Career 1+ k's/IP, which is pretty impressive. His ERA has also been brought down to a very nice level.

If he relieves, I would expect a 4.5-5.5 era.
