1) Guardado gets hurt after giving the M's enough time to get comfortable that Soriano is healthy enough and can handle a closer's workload (if they're not comfortable then Putz would close in this case).
2) Guardado gets traded right near the trade deadline to a contender.
3) Next year.
I'll second that. If anything happens to Guardado in the next month or so, expect Putz to get first crack. If Soriano gets through the break without any setbacks, though, he should be the guy if Eddie gets dealt by deadline.
