Yost used David Riske -- not Derrick Turnbow -- in the bottom of the 10th, and Riske converted his 21st career save. Yost said he would have used Riske for two innings, then turned to Turnbow had the game progressed that far.
It sounds like Turnbow might actually be Plan C or Plan D. When the Brewers spent $10 million on one of the worst imaginable closing options -- seriously, look at Gagne's second half last year -- that was the vote of no-confidence in Turnbow.
In a competitive NL-only league, someone already owns Riske. Mota could be available, though. In 12.1 innings this spring, he allowed only two runs, six hits, one walk, and he struck out 12.
- Derrick Turnbow
