MESA http://www.tigersfanproshop.com/authentic-joe-jimenez-jersey , Ariz. (AP) — Cubs manager Joe Maddon has a lot of experience cobbling together bullpens from pitchers without defined roles.Until closer Brandon Morrow is mended and ready, Maddon will once again be faced with a juggling act of sorts in the late innings.Maddon said Sunday the Cubs bullpen is a “fluid” situation. While that’s not ideal, it’s nothing new for the three-time manager of the year. He’s not so big on in-game guidelines, anyway.“I think primarily the focus will be who’s rested, who hasn’t pitched a couple days in a row,” Maddon said. “And work it that way until Brandon becomes available. And when he becomes available, it’s still not going to be an everyday kind of thing. So, I will work off numbers, but I think with this particular group, a lot of it will have to do with who’s most rested.”Morrow had right elbow surgery in November after being shut down in mid-July, and he’s unlikely to be ready for opening day. Without him, Chicago still had the NL’s top bullpen last year Sparky Anderson Jersey , riding a versatile core group topped by Pedro Strop, Carl Edwards Jr., Steve Cishek and Mike Montgomery. The Cubs bullpen had the NL’s best ERA (3.35) and opponents’ average (.223).The front office still added some reinforcements this winter, bringing in righties Brad Brach — a former All-Star — and Tony Barnette.“We’d love to be in a position where we can withstand a couple injuries in spring training,” president of baseball operations Theo Epstein said, “and still put a really quality bullpen out there. That’s one area where the market’s been pretty soft and pretty slow developing, and we’ve been active. So, we’ll stay in touch with everybody.”Strop was the primary fill-in for Morrow when he went down with right forearm inflammation on July 19, and it’s possible he’ll start this season in the same role. He was 6-1 with 13 saves and a 2.26 ERA in 60 games, covering 59 2/3 innings while allowing a .179 average against.“If I’m the closer, that’s fine,” he said. “I’m going to take the challenge and pick my boy up. We’ve got a bunch of guys down there. I feel comfortable because I’m not by myself down there.”However the bullpen shapes up when the Cubs break camp at the end of March Jack Morris Jersey , Morrow will be a welcome addition once he is deemed ready.Morrow had 22 saves and 1.47 ERA in 35 games before the injury. He wasn’t supposed to miss the rest of the season, but a CT scan revealed an osteochondral defect in the joining of the humerus bone. The flare up set him back this spring as he expected to start throwing daily this week and build up from there.All the setbacks led to a difficult first-year with the Cubs for Morrow despite how well he performed when healthy.“Especially when you’re having a really good year — maybe your best year — it’s disappointing,” Morrow said. “You feel like you let the team down and fans and things like that. There’s nothing you can do but try to get back. And, unfortunately, it didn’t work out. Just missing the first month this year will be better this year will be better than the last three months last year.” HOUSTON (AP) — Alex Bregman might be having the best season by any Houston Astros player this year.Only don’t try telling him that.“I have a lot of room to improve and I’m definitely not satisfied … I think I need to get a lot better,” the All-Star third baseman said.Bregman homered for the third straight game and Yuli Gurriel also connected as the Astros won their third in a row, 4-1 over the Minnesota Twins on Monday.Dallas Keuchel (11-10) scattered five hits over six innings and allowed one unearned run. Brad Peacock allowed a single with two outs in the ninth to load the bases, but struck out Jorge Polanco to escape the jam and get his third save.Kyle Gibson (7-12) yielded four hits and four runs — two earned — with five strikeouts in seven innings for his third straight loss.“I kind of struggled the last month or so with a little bit of command and executing pitches … other than a tough couple plays in the second it was pretty good,” Gibson said.There were two outs in the first inning when Bregman hit his 28th home run to give Houston a 1-0 lead. He has reached base safely in 31 straight games, the longest active streak in the majors. He has 13 hits, including four homers and three doubles, and 10 RBIs in his last eight games.“This is the best I’ve seen him play in a short career Michael Fulmer Jersey ,” manager A.J. Hinch said. “He’s just very locked in … he’s very under control. He’s very locked in. He knows a ball from a strike. He’s hunting the right pitches. He’s laying off the right pitches. He’s a pretty elite performer.”Bregman has set a career high for home runs and leads the Astros in that category. He ranks first on the team with 89 RBIs and 43 doubles. He also has a triple this year to give him 72 extra-base hits, the most by an Astros player since Lance Berkman had 79 in 2008.“This season has definitely been the best so far personally,” Bregman said. “But I think that’s strictly due to the fact that I’m just trying to go up there and trying to put together a good at-bat and trying to help this team win games.”Tyler White singled to start the Houston second before Gurriel reached on an error by Polanco at shortstop. Brian McCann followed with an RBI single and Evan Gattis then grounded into a double play that allowed another run to score for a 3-0 lead.Gurriel homered off Gibson in the fourth.Keuchel had retired seven straight when Mitch Garver singled with one out in the sixth. An error by shortstop Carlos Correa, who overthrew first base, allowed Robbie Grossman to reach before the Twins cut the lead to 4-1 on an RBI single by Miguel Sano. But Keuchel struck out Jake Cave and Tyler Austin to end the inning and leave the runners stranded.Gibson settled down after the homer to Gurriel and retired the last 11 batters he faced before Matt Magill took over for the eighth.TRAINER’S ROOMAstros: RHP Hector Rondon left the game after deflecting a ball hit by Cave off his right hand in the ninth inning. Rondon’s hand was swollen after the game but he said X-rays were negative and he thinks he’ll be OK after a couple of days. … Houston INF Marwin Gonzalez left after the first inning because of discomfort in his right oblique. … RHP Charlie Morton (shoulder discomfort) played catch for the second straight day and is scheduled to throw a bullpen session in the next couple of days. Hinch said if that goes well he’ll come off the disabled list to start against Boston on Saturday. If he can’t go the Astros will start rookie Josh James, who made his major league debut on Saturday.THEY SAID ITHinch on the ball that hit Rondon: “He’s lucky he put his arm up. If you look at the replay it probably saved his face. I think it even got a little bit of flesh and not so much the bone. Very scary.”UP NEXTJustin Verlander (13-9, 2.78 ERA) will start for Houston against Trevor May (3-0, 1.88) when the series continues on Tuesday night. Verlander ranks second in the American League behind teammate Gerrit Cole with 240 strikeouts this season.
