Kuo relevant again for saves

Steals/Saves Ain't Got No Face. Closers and speed talk. Which MRs are moving in? Which schmohawk speedster is getting steals at MI?

Kuo relevant again for saves

"Yeah, I'm ready," Kuo said. "The team has treated me good, and I've taken my time and I think I'm ready."

Kuo has been wowing club officials with his velocity and command in both bullpen sessions and Minor League games. Manager Don Mattingly said Kuo will likely be activated Sunday.

"He's got a good look in his eye. He looks happy," Mattingly said. "The ball is coming out of his hand looking good."

Mattingly said he's not been told of any restrictions on Kuo's usage other than the normal caution that comes with his four elbow operations, but Mattingly also said he's likely to use Kuo immediately in closer situations.

Kuo said he has spoken to counselors about the anxiety that has caused repeated cases of the yips, or the inability to make competitive pitches.

"I have some issues. Everybody has issues," he said. "I'm OK right now. I'm ready. I'm more excited than nervous, and that's a good sign."

Mental issues always scare me more than physical ones. When Broxton comes back in the next two weeks, I expect him to be renamed closer.

Kuo didn't help my numbers the past few days. It doesn't look like there is a much of a closer position in him.
