In case you were stashing Valverde...

You can now feel free to cut him. Wow! How bad do you have to be to lose your closers job to Jorge Julio?


Rotoworld:
The Diamondbacks plan to use Jose Valverde as the setup man.
Valverde has been excellent in his last two outings. He has struck out eight batters and allowed just one hit over three innings. Jorge Julio will remain the closer. Jun. 23 - 9:05 am et

Are you sure?

Valverde's pitched very well recently, 8 K in his last 3 IP (saw it on a blurb somewhere). Apparently Melvin says he's now to be entrusted w/ late-game work--not closing, but the 7th and 8th--again. If he does well, and Julio reveals his mediocrity, then he's back on the job. I'd say, give it two weeks. If he performs well and Julio starts giving up a homer here or there, we could see another switch.

Possible. But this made the decision on who to cut to add An. Reyes real easy for me in the one league I was still stashing Valverde in.

It would be nice if it got figured out soon. I hate having two roster spots for basically one position in H2H.

As long as Valverde keeps this up (not necessarily this pace, but still good) he should have his job back soon. It looks like he's back on track. ;-D

Heh, name me one year that Julio has been a good pitcher. He is in no way a closer. He still walks too many people and gives up too many homeruns, I see an explosion coming.

I completely disagree. The key here is Julio's performance, not Valverde's. If Julio keeps pitching well, I don't care how good Valverde is he's not getting the job back. If (many people would say "when") Julio blows up, then it's up for debate, but not before.
