Assuming Strop is healthy ROS:

Strop Kelley Robles Alvarado.  And I own the last three. 

If Castillo went away move Alvarado to#1.

 

If Alvarado doesn't start throwing strikes when he gets back he's not going to be on anyone's number 1.  Rays have viable options...

Cash seems pretty loyal, though. Even after multiple blowups now, he has gotten the call and gone back out there. He's being used in high leverage/non-save situations still, so it's a committee for sure.

Where do you guys figure Brandon Morrow factors into things?

Maddon has said in the past that Morrow will be the close upon his return. Does this hold true? or given Morrows injury history and the fact he has missed almost half the season factor into Maddon sticking with Strop for this year? assuming he remains closer material.

 

Morrow's throwing program has been interrupted so many times due to setbacks. I is looking more likely that he doesn't throw an important pitch for the Cubs this year...

He had an injection in his elbow in late April. He threw from 45-60 feet on flat ground on May 20th but there hasn't been an update since then. AFAIK, he still has no timetable.

Castillo/Alvarado co-closers.......Pagan fireman are the roles IMO

sounds right IMO. I own Castillo. I believe he is the better pitcher, and he carries SP flex. so is rather valuable. Hope he takes over entirely.

Saw this.

Am in a pickle deciding if i should hold onto Leclerc or pick up Strop. I have been cautious for two reasons on Strop. Brandon Morrow return is within sight possibly? and Kimbrel is on the market.. If Zobrist doesnt return, it gives the Cubs roughly 9 million i believe to help sign Kimbrel. Their bullpen is a disaster and this would solve a lot of issues and provide clarity on the Cubs bullpen situation.

Wonder if the Seranthony injury brings the Phils up in the Kimbrel race?

I was actually hoping for 1 more opening appearance for him so he could get SP eligibility in Yahoo before the inevitable Kelley meltdown, but it might be too late already.

Giving up a HR to Richie Martin should be automatic for removal from the closer role.
