18 Comments

After watching Heath Bell blow his fourth save in seven chances Friday against the Padres, the Marlins are finally ready to make a change. Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald brings the breaking news:

Edward Mujica, Ryan Webb and Steve Cishek seem likely to split save opportunities going forward.

Bell signed a three-year, $27 million free agent contract with the Fish this offseason after posting a dominant 2.53 ERA, 9.4 K/9 and 134 saves in five years for the Padres. Through his first 8 2/3 innings with Miami, the 34-year-old right-hander has registered an 11.42 ERA, 6.2 K/9 and only three converted saves.

Longtime Angels and Cardinals outfielder Jim Edmonds shared on his Instagram story that he is being tested for coronavirus.

The four-time All-Star, who now works as a broadcaster for Fox Sports Midwest, has not posted an update on the results of his test.

If you want to learn more about COVID-19 or think you might need to be tested, give the CDC’s site about the virus a read. Informing yourself is the most important step. Washing your hands and staying home, if possible, is the best way to protect yourself.
