  1. add in that Joey Devine should be ready soon and the A’s pen is stacked Bailey or no Bailey…

  2. Hong-Chi Kuo is a guy who has had two Tommy Johns (plus two other elbow surgeries). Hopefully Bailey can turn out that well.

  3. It could just be scar tissue breaking free and some swelling, so let’s not get too ahead of ourselves writing the kids obit before we check the body for a pulse.

  4. If Wuertz can find his 2009 slider and Devine comes back anywhere close to what he was in ’08, this is easily still one of the best bullpens in the league should Bailey be out. I have to admit, I thought BB could have found a more effective way to spend the extra moolah this offseason (I never thought they were bad signings, just not the most effective given the teams strengths and weaknesses), but the extra bp depth sure looks good today.

  5. The Athletics announced Tuesday that Andrew Bailey was diagnosed with a strained right forearm.

    The diagnosis was made following a visit to Dr. James Andrews. The statement says that Bailey “experienced no swelling and can resume throwing when asymptomatic.” There’s no timetable for his return, but it doesn’t appear as though there is any structural damage, which is obviously an excellent sign. Fantasy owners should still grab Brian Fuentes and/or Grant Balfour for now, but it sounds as if Bailey dodged a bullet here.

  6. BB loves stocking up on what he thinks will be valuable commodities for other teams down the stretch. I would not be the least bit surprised to see Fuentes and/or Balfour finish the year on different teams.
