So Bobby Cox said that Soriana was not available yesterday because he had "lingering elbow soreness."

Time to move on Mike Gonzalez? I'm looking for a more long-term, stable source.

I could swear that Yahoo has Gonzalez on the DL right now.

Yeah, he's on the DL but he's expected to come off soon. I heard reports out of Atlanta that Gonzalez is being looked at as "the savior" after Smoltz went down. Soriano may be headed back to the DL, Acosta's not ready, Gonzalez used to be a full-time closer...

You're right - he's still on the DL. He's not due to throw in the minors until this weekend, scheduled to come off the DL sometime next week. I'm not ready to throw out Soriano, yet. Cox et al are being careful with him. Let it see how it plays out in the next couple of days before picking up a guy who hasn't come off the DL yet.

[After losing John Smoltz, the Braves had expected to turn to Soriano for saves, but the oft-injured pitcher is injured again, leaving them hoping that Mike Gonzalez will be back soon. It's not so much a setback as it seems that Soriano can't recover, making back-to-back days tough . . .. The Braves bullpen has quickly gone from a strength to a problem spot, leaving many wondering if they'll try to go young or look outside for trades. Sources tell me that Gonzalez "is the savior right now," with the team hoping he can do what Soriano hasn't.]

From Will Carroll.

By the way, I don't own Soriano, so I'm speaking as a vulture in a league with DL spots...

I say Gonzalez is going to be first looked at it in the ninth when he returns, but there's no indication that he'll stay healthy.

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.
