Injuries:
Roberto Osuna - Jason Grilli will be temporary closer
Huston Street - Cam Bedrosian will open as starter. Would love to see him keep it.
Jeurys Familia suspended 15 games. Addison Reed will fill in.

Out of curiousity, do you feel the situation in Colorado really is a committee with the likes of Motte? I know you never know with the Rox, but they trade for McGee so he can setup Motte seems kind of ridiculous even if they are saying otherwise and do not want to commit to a person at this time.

I guess committee is a poor word to use at the moment. I will change to battle till the regular season starts. I haven't seen anything that says they have given the closer role to McGee, but I completely agree. He is the likely guy.

A quote from the Philles pitching coach: Pitching coach Bob McClure said he is leaning toward Bailey as his choice to close for the Phillies, the team's official site reports. "Bailey has done it before, so just talking about it, I would lean more towards looking at him as the guy, only because he's done it before and had success," McClure said. "But it could change. It could change. I'm kind of up in the air on it a little bit."

Any chance Andrew Miller stays in as closer after Chapman comes back? Or is that just wishful thinking?

Possible but not very likely. First off, Chapman is likely gone after this year so the Yanks have every incentive to maximize his worth either for a July deadline deal or so that they get a draft pick when he walks after the season. Secondly, Miller is more ameniable to setting up than Chapman likely would be. Only way I see Miller staying on as closer is if Chapman stinks up the place.
