Why no Clase tonight?

Good question.  He had pitched three of the last five but had a day off yesterday.

We know Diekman isn’t the closer - had him up in the eighth to relieve Louis Trivino’s sad a**

Anyone think Crichton could hang onto the AZ closer job? He has somewhat underwhelming stuff, but had success closing at the end of last year and has been successful so far this year in the role. Anyone think they'd move back to Soria (or someone else) or is this Crichton's job to lose at this point?

After Soria’s latest outing, it may be Crichton’s job to lose.

They’re sharing closing duties.

 

Also complement Closer Monkey with this:

Yes - with Trivino handling the heart of the order and Diekman handling the easier matchups.  Seems to be the new trend and it’s made it harder to roster part-time closers that constantly face better hitters.

Anyone else intrigued by Springs and his change?  His K/BB is astronomical so far.  I don’t know much about him other than he’s been a bit well traveled.

Yea.. is Trivino a drop? The wire is so bare... 

Even if Springs gets the role for now, it won’t be for that long anyways right? I’d be nuts to drop Trivino for Springs.. right???

Was watching, Cleveland crew said they just wanted to give him a true day off — yesterday he started warming up in the 9th just in case as KC started threatening. Nothing to see here (yet).

Fighting some very strong rage drop urges right now. This is going to take a month to work off in roto.

Isn’t is easier if it’s just a fraction of an inning?

Reyes hasn’t allowed a run in 15 innings and hasn’t allowed a baserunner in 3/4 outings now... but you don’t trust him?

Reyes & Clase seem to be seriously underrated by those taking it upon themselves to do up rankings on this thread. They just keep crushing it but are routinely ranked in the 10-20 range. Makes no sense.
