What are the odds the A’s use Treinen in key high leverage situations and use Rodney to close. As a Trienen owner I’m a little nervous

Not going to happen. Like I said in my previous post, Treinen is a top 3 closer.

Addison Reed just returned from an elbow impingement july 30th and has a 1.42 whip for the year seems odd to call him the likely closer. 

 

You absolutely must ignore any blue print in any RW blurb - it’s useless and often flat-out wrong.

Rodney has to be nearing the record for most traded player by now.  Or most teams in a career. Or both.

I feel like E-Jax must have that one

I don't think Rodney's a threat to Familia as setup man, much less Treinen. Just bullpen depth.

I don't see it. Trivino has been great and they haven't done that with Trienen. Other than Buchter, A's have no other LHPs in the pen.... that's Rodney's role.

Time to add Ottavino where available?

Gotta think yes. They can’t keep blowing games as they’re trying to make the playoffs.

Looking at Alexander's numbers, they aren't very good. His K% and BB% are both mediocre/bad. However, he has been elite at keeping the ball on the ground.

Does Knebel lose the job? We have already seen Hader and Jeffress get some chances over the past few weeks at saves

Found a bit about Jansen's heart history... man i hope this isn't serious.


 

Quote

 

Jansen spent a month on the disabled list during the 2011 season because of blood thinning medication he was taking to treat an irregular heartbeat. In 2012, he was out again after suffering an irregular heartbeat during an Aug. 27 appearance in Colorado. He underwent a procedure on his heart on Oct. 23, 2012, to return it to normal rhythm.

 

"Once he sees the doctors, the cardiologists - we'll know more about his timetable then," Roberts said.
