Gagne watch

Postby bcb » Tue May 16, 2006 12:03 pm

Gagne is available in my league. Is he worth a pickup? Any chance he regains his 2004 form?

From Yahoo:
May 15 Ken Gurnick, of Dodgers.MLB.com, reports Los Angeles Dodgers P Eric Gagne (elbow) threw curveballs for the first time during a bullpen session Sunday, May 14. Gagne is roughly a week away from a minor league rehab assignment.


From CBSSportsline:
Eric Gagne (right elbow) will throw a bullpen session Tuesday, just toss a ball on the side the next three days and throw a batting practice session on Friday when the team gets back to Los Angeles. "We aren't considering anything behind Friday," Little said. "We'll see how it goes on Friday. He might need another one of batting practice sessions and he might not."

Gagne will begin a rehab assignment on May 25. Manager Grady Little said he is "very confident Gagne will be back around the first week of June," which is a great sign. Fill-in closer Danys Baez has blown four straight save chances and Joe Beimel was called on Sunday to get a save.

There is no league where he should be available...He could be back as soon as 2 weeks and even if he is at 90% he would still be a top 10 closer...which I am sure is valuable in any format.

While I would not count on much from Gagne and probably wouldn't trade for him he would be worth a #1 waiver pick and quite a bit of FAAB budget if those situations came up. He's definitely worth a roster spot. ;)

I decided to drop Francoeur for him (I already have Beltran, Bay, MCab, CLee, Swisher and Hawpe for OFers).

Current RPs are Hoffman, Flash and Benitez. I can always package one of those closers w/ an OFer to improve another position if Gagne comes back strong.

I think he'll be back by then - back on the DL.
