Brandon Lyon was/is/will be bad always. Contreras may or may not be in a wheelchair, but still has a better chance than Lyon.

I think they're just AAA filler and will only see Boston by emergency.

If we don't get a couple RP at the deadline and Tazawa gets fatigued -- they will be pitching the 7th and 8th in Boston.

I hope Contreras works back into some kind of form

Extremely unlikely.

Lol come on now...

I think Workman is gonna be a key reliever once Buchholz is back.

I'd rather call up Rafael Perez or Chris Martin before we trade anything of value away.

Jose Conteras? There's a name I haven't heard in a while. If he's back to his old self he'll be a good add.

^^ He's worked exclusively in the BP. 21IP/13H/2ER/28K/7BB with sexy groundball ratio at AAA but got hit around at the MLB level (5IP/7H/5ER/5K/6BB). The MLB stint was right around Memorial Day so he may have straightened things out since.
