Derrick Turnbow was scratched from Monday’s outing against the Giants because of a sore right knee. Turnbow had some swelling in the knee when he showed up to the ballpark on Monday.
That’s three relievers trying to win a job who are down: Willie Eyre (groin), Dustin Nippert (back) and Turnbow. This isn’t going to help Turnbow but no word yet how long he’ll be out.
So to sum up…
Frank Francisco – closer
C.J. Wilson – setup reliever
Eddie Guardado – setup reliever
Warner Madrigal – Appears in as setup reliever
Josh Rupe – Appears in as middle reliever
Dustin Nippert – down
Willie Eyre – down
Derrick Turnbow – down
Doug Mathis – Triple A starter
Scott Feldman – waiting on Kris Benson
Jason Jennings – Still undecided on him.
