Riding The Cart: The 2019 Bullpen Thread
« Topic Start: January 15, 2019, 12:55:44 PM »
As of now:

Closer: Doolittle
Setup: Rosenthal

RHP: Suero, Miller, Barraclough, Glover
LHP: Grace, Solis

Seems we still need to add a lefty.

Doolittle is a lefty...and I would not be surprised if we had a 7 man pen...at least to start the season...

Seems we'd want another lefty while we put Solis at Fresno to see if he can pitch again.

Solis is out of options.  He can't be sent to Fresno without passing through waivers.

He's going to have to have a heck of a camp.

If he doesn't make it in camp, he will be DFA'd.

Not stoked about Solis and Grace as the lefties before we get to Doo to close.  You can always uncover cheap gems in the bullpen market, so hopefully we strike gold.

I feel like a LOOGY or lefty specialist is something you pick up at the deadline.

I'm much more concerned with Grace being our only lefty option but also being the long reliever

Suero could go a couple of innings.
