Corpas would be the only reasonable option.

Ok, something has to be seriously wrong with this guy. On the bench he goes.
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!

Everybody is entitled to a bad week... but DAMN... this has been a really bad week!! He's been absolutely killing me. Hopefully he shakes it off quick, and it doesn't end up being a psychological thing.

I don't even know anymore, it's just getting ridiculous.

Corpas would be next in line, but Hurdle likes to "show confidence" in his players so who knows what will happen.

And the Rockies have to actually get into a save opportunity again. :,-(

You're all wrong. Fuentes had dinner with Todd Jones last thursday. Apparently they had a long talk on what it means to be a closer. As Jones is by far the more senior Veteran Fuentes did most of the listening. He was overhead telling another Rockies reliever prior to game time last friday "I learned a lot from Jones and hope it shows on the field."

The Denver Post is reporting that Fuentes has been temporarily removed from the closer role by manager Clint Hurdle.
