Don’t like the Reed pick at all for tomorrow. It’s shields vs Humber (edge rays) and it would be back to back days for reed. Also the sox are probably due for a loss

Yeah, shields vs humber? Reed is a great reliever but he is not who id pick for tomorrow to be honest. Id probably go Craig Kimbrel, whose strikeout rate is just as good or better plus the Braves have lost god knows how many games in a row. For a good team, they should get a win here in the next couple games and a great chance we see Kimbrel for a save situation. I would say Kimbrel, Jansen or Chapman for tomorrow for those who are interested.
Seattle’s situation was talked about in the last Bullpen Report and not much information was gained from last nights game. Eric Wedge said that he’d hold League back a bit, and League did pitch a scoreless 9th in a non-save situation. Furbush looked good too, but as a lefty, he has some pretty drastic platoon splits. Since the manager said League is out we can assume Wilhelmsen will get some looks, but he hasn’t been so dominant this year as to potentially kill any trade value that League has. It’s still a very tepid situation, but I expect Wilhelmsen to get the first looks.
As for The Game choice, I can’t argue with anyone choosing Kimbrel any day as he’s certifiably terrific.
