watch the video clip from remy. he said that if foulke continues his downward spiral, arroyo could get some save opps. with his numbers against righties, it could be a good move.

I don't know about having him close...if teams have bench lefties left at that point they could run them out there at that point as well. But in MR I think he'd really shine. Foulke looks terrible though...at this point I think I'd rather have Wakefield closing.
This is the year wrote:Arroyo has to go to the pen. I can appreciate his merit as a starter, but opposing managers just stack their lineups with all of their bench lefties, and he gets rocked. He has a .291 BAA for lefties, compared with a .191 against righties. I think he would actually have MORE value (real baseball wise) in a long relief/setup role, at least until another starter gets injured. He can be used for high-leverage middle innings. There, unlike in the last inning or to start the game, managers would have to think twice about using lefties off their bench.
