Is Veras going to be as bad as these 2? I hope not... :-o

Rivera gets the save in his return. 1 IP, 1 H, 1 BB, 1 ER, 1K. Constantly hitting 90-91, same as early on last year. Outside of the walk to Pedroia he was constantly hitting his spots, and the cutter was still dancing.

Rotoworld just said that Janssen may not pitch in back-to-back games. Now it's the 9th and a save opp... waiting to see who it will be.

Very doubtful they let him go 3 days in a row, making Santos a nice one-day rogue save target.

Balfour or Fujikawa, assuming Fuji has the closer role by May 1?

Probably Fujikawa. Balfour can't seem to stay healthy.

Oliver and Delabar are also sneaky save vultures for when Janssen goes back to back days.
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!

I think you're right, but they were also used two days in a row (3rd and 4th). Santos was held back yesterday, so I thought he was the best bet for today.
