With all the injuries to the outfield and to our bullpen, along with some under performing bullpen arms, some changes need to be made...My predictions
JBJ(40-man) will be in CF tonight. With Ells AND Vic (IVC) out, we cant see another OF like we did last night. Id put money on it.
De La Torre threw 50 pitches in 1.2 IP and will not be available for a day or 2. Wilson has also been getting hit very hard lately so its time for a couple new arms.
Drake Britton should be called up (40-man) to replace LHP Andrew Miller. LHH were hitting .187/.243/.308 off of him. RDLR (also on 40-man) is holding RHH to a .213/.292/.380 line and LHH to a .198/.328/.307 line.
Guys like Pedro Beato(40-man), Brandon Workman(not on 40), Brock Huntzinger(not on 40) and Anthony Carter(not on 40)are also possibilities.
You can count on Ben C to exhaust any possible internal option before taking the big risk of looking into a trade for a middle reliever.
Jonathan Diaz cleared waivers and was sent to AAA, so there is another spot open on the 40-man. Last I checked, there were 38 or 39 right now which leaves them some breathing room to add a couple guys who are not already on it.
