What's buzzing:

Jose Valverde: Not Available Monday

Update: Valverde will not take the mound Monday against Minnesota, as he appeared both Saturday and Sunday, MLB.com reports.

Recommendation: Manager Jim Leyland will avoid trotting Valverde out there three days in row in the early going, even after holding steady, with no runs allowed, in three scoreless innings to date. In Valverde's absence, Joaquin Benoit will earn any save opportunity that arises.
