1:51 pm The Mets, looking for a setup man, have asked the Devil Rays about closer Danys Baez. [/quote]
Then who closes for TB? Colome? Carter? Travis Harper? Seth McClung? Chad Orvella? They trade for somebody?
I say Colome steps up.
[quote] Baez might be trade bait as the Rays try to fill their holes, in which case Colome would step up. He finally harnessed some control over his 100 mph fastball to register a 40:18 K:BB in 41.3 IP in 2004 and is someone to watch over a full 70+ IP this year. He sat out the final three weeks of last year with shoulder inflammation, but threw pain-free in winter ball. Carter, who was deposed as closer by Baez, barely strikes anyone out and can be skipped in the fantasy world. Harper fares better but has little chance to pick up any stray saves. McClung, a top prospect and closer-of-the-future designee, has returned from 2003 Tommy John surgery and could be headed either to set-up or the rotation. Orvella recorded 117 K in 74 minor league innings last year on the way from Single-A to Triple-A. Whether he makes the roster or stays in Triple-A for opening day, this kid's on his way[/quote]
