And here.. we.. go.  

Only major update so far is Rosenthal on the DL.  Diekman / Romo / Trevino.  They went out of their way to name Diekman before so he probably gets first shot.  Yuck

Saw some mention about the Padres not making an announcement after all.  I'm fairly certain they only said they had decided on a closer and would NOT announce it before it happens (i..e ninth inning lead) for competitive reasons.

Not judging by these batting averages allowed to right-handed hitters:

2018: .193

2019: .210

2020: .070

Rosenthal out with shoulder discomfort.  I think we all know that is code for "arm amputation."  Godspeed Jake Diekman, and welcome to the closerpocalypse.
