What happens in Atlanta when Vizcaino comes back? Has Minter been too good to replace?

 

Minter isn’t going anywhere. Viz will get the setup role once he returns. This is Minter’s job rob LOSE.

Not sure either.  I would have assumed Norris would have been unavailable anyways though, so might not be too much to really worry about yet unless they a useless x-ray and then decide to take an MRI and it reveals something entirely different (joking on the last part obviously since it's happened several times this season with players).

Do you have a source for this or are you just posting hopes/prayers?

 

I mean, I don't own Viz and have been riding Minter too. But there is zero doubt in my mind that Viz will be the closer if/when he shows he's healthy and back to normal. The fact is, Viz was clearly the guy before he went down and was very solid in the role and he's only been gone for like a month. Minter being a lefty helps Vizcaino's cause too.

No source but can’t fix something if it isn’t broken. Minter is their future close anyways and he’s hot so why take him out! Would be a piss poor decision by the manager if he does so.

60/40.   Let’s not forget how great Viz was before his injury.   Minter has been good, not as good as Vizcaino was before his injury

It wasn’t broken before Vizcaino got hurt, either.   It’s kinda up in the air.

I'm a Vizcaino owner with no shares of Minter.  I would love for Vizcaino to get the job back, but I think Minter keeps the job as well he should.  He's had it for an extended period now and has been successful in the role.

Like I said.   I think it’s 60/40.   It’s not a sure thing by no means.

Gomez in for the save for the White Sox trying to protect a 3 run lead.

And now Gomez is out, Avilan is in and the bases are loaded. This is the White Sox.

Hildenberger locks down save for the second straight day. He's had some scary blowups, but he's clearly the guy.

Is hector rondon the unquestioned astros close ros, or is there still a reasonable chance that Osuna takes the job?

No one here can answer this. Hell, I don’t think their manager can answer.
