Has there been any word out of SEA about Swarzak moving forward?

 

I don't think Servais has said anything officially yet.  Here is Seattle's beat writers take on the situation.

 

There are most tweets in the thread, if you wish to look through them.  Honestly, Seattle's is probably a pen I would just avoid at the moment.

Cishek  probably. But this is Joe Maddon, so expect a committee

I watch all of the cubs games, i'd rank the order of pickups as: 

cishek

kintzler

brach

Cishek got the last save when Strop wasn't available and was very fired up after the last out, I think Joe liked that.   But Joe will probably mix and match a little.

Like I said, Maddon likes going with the committee approach. He very well may fall somewhere into that committee, but he wouldn't be my first choice.

Thank you. Now I have someone to blame when I pick up the wrong guy.

Like I said, it's always possible with Maddon… my magic 8 ball would probably lean towards no, but you never know.

just to make things more interesting, cishek has pitched 3 of the last 4 games, so if a save opp were to come up tonight, Joe might not go to him to avoid overworking him.  Still think Cishek will get the most saves until Strop returns, but with Maddon you never know.

adding to that, Kintzler (who I would put as next in line just personally) has also pitched in 3/4.

I think it's fair to assume Allen Webster will see the next save chance.

without someone emerging as the option for Seattle, Hunter Strickland could be that option when he returns.

 

Quote

Hunter Strickland (lat) has been cleared to start throwing again on Monday.

Advice: Strickland has been on the disabled list since March 31 because of a Grade 2 strain of his right lat, and was transferred to the 60-day injured list a day later. That means the earliest he could come back is at the end of May, but we typically don't see pitchers come back from this type of injury that quickly. That being said, the fact that he's cleared to throw does give him a chance at returning before June ends, and there's a good chance he will reclaim the closing spot with the Mariners shortly after, maybe even immediately.

Obviously Maddon’s answer to the closer question: “It’s everybody.”

 

Thanks, dude.

No. Not worried at all about tonight.
