Morales back in the lineup today batting fourth.
Here's a question: When Tulo, Donaldson, Happ and Sanchez return, how does the roster shake out? (Martin is an easy one, just send one of the BUF catchers back to BUF). With Tulo and Donaldson back, we would end up with two reserve infielders in Barney and Goins. (Let's say Pearce is an outfielder for purposes of this exercise). There is no obvious outfielder to drop, can't drop Carrera, Pillar, won't drop Bautista. To keep both Barney and Goins, one answer might be reducing the bullpen, so long as Happ, Sanchez and Liriano are healthy so Biagini can return to the pen. Bolsinger would then return to BUF along with one of the BUF relievers, but there would have to be one more reliever sent out. Chris Smith has done a nice job as the eighth inning guy, and he and Howell could become the 7th inning tandem. So either one of Barnes/Tapera (both of whom are pitching decently) or Grilli, who is not pitching all that well and whose role seems to have been usurped by Smith/Biagini seem like candidates.
