Mattingly admits he has thought of shaking things up, but is reluctant to appear he is giving up on anyone with almost four-fifths of the season remaining.
One reliever who may be flat-out earning his way to the back of the bullpen is left-hander Paco Rodriguez. He has not allowed a run in his last five outings, striking out 10 in 6 2/3 innings.
“The way Paco is going, he’s getting righties and lefties out, he’s a guy we’re really going to have to take a look,” Mattingly said. “It’s hard to stay status quo, but you kind of want to stick with your plan and to your guns.
“You hate to just jump ship on that and give up on guys. That wouldn’t be giving up on guys, just him making enough noise to say, `Hey, I can pitch back here and get both guys out.’ He’s working his way more and more really to that role.”

Francisco felt discomfort yesterday. Another setback it appears. Going to the doctor this week.
