If Guardado is traded... who's next for saves in Seattle?

Postby bunter » Thu Jul 07, 2005 8:15 am

I heard rumors saying that the Red Sox would be interrested in Eddie Guardado in Seattle. Idf he's trade, who's next in line for saves with the Mariners?

The talk of the town has been that it will be Schilling who closes for the Sox. I wouldn't be expecting that trade to go through... unless Schilling reinjures his ankle. I don't think Guardado would be worth killing their farm system for. I'm hoping that someone from within the organization can handle the closing job (like Schilling) until Foulke gets back. Then they still need to find someone for the bullpen, but that won't be as costly as finding a closer.

I don't have any idea who will close if Eddie is traded. But I did pick up Rafael Soriano...just in case! :-?

As a Mariners fan, I sure as hell hope it isn't Putz. My guess would be Rafael Soriano. He's been hyped as the team's closer of the future for a while now, and he's pretty close to coming back.

Soriano (elbow) could re-join the Mariners "shortly after the All-Star break," though he still is scheduled to make rehab stops at Double-A San Antonio and then Triple-A Tacoma, Seattle Times reports.

Soriano pitched well during his rehab option in Single-A ball. Once he's logged enough innings at Double-A and Triple-A, the M's will call him up. But while the Mariners are shooting for "shortly after the All-Star break," expect Soriano's return in at least couple more weeks, more like late July. He hasn't even been sent to the higher levels yet and he'll need at least a week at both San Antonio and Tacoma.

Is it just me? or does Putz remind you for Turnbow?

Killer arm, but no control.

And yeah, I'm hoping Soriano. Youngster has a bright future.

Prolly not ... was called up early enough to make 8 starts in '02, then made 40 relief appearances (53 inns.) in '03.
