They're really pushing to get him back as quick as possible, due to the bullpen's lack of ability. I doubt he pitches back to back games for awhile. He could still get 25 saves when all is said and done, though. That's not too bad. Provided he does come back in early June and stays healthy the rest of the way out. I've had him stashed away on my DL since the day of the draft in one of my leagues.

LaRussa and Duncan were quoted as saying that the only way Izzy pitches back to back games is if it's game 6 and 7 of the World Series. I would take that to mean don't expect him to at all this year.
