Andrew Bailey will be activated Monday


I'd like to see Uehara given the save opps when Bailey goes down again, but I guess Tazawa is still the stash at this point. I would not hesitate to own either of them in deeper leagues. Uehara has previous experience and can contribute excellent ratios in any role.

Steve Cischek was replaced by Mike Dunn with 2 out and 2 on and 1 run already in to face Miguel Montero. Montero is a left hander who doesn't hit as well against LHP, and Dunn is a LHP. but Dunn walked Montero to load the bases. AJ Pollock pinch hit for Pennington, and grounded out to end the game.
if Cischek is replaced, who's next? Dunn? Ryan Webb? AJ Ramos?

one can update the 1st page for Miami. Rauch was designated for assignment.

I think Balfour pitched the previous 2 days and there's kind of an unwritten rule that you don't use a closer 3 days straight, to preserve them.

Kimbrel and Mujica will both most likely be unavailable tonight since they have pitched 3 straight games.

I wouldn't be. He's had poor location with the cutter recently. It'll get fixed.
