Brutal news here from Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle, via tweet:
[Andrew] Bailey getting looked at on mound by trainer, holding right elbow.
Yup, that would be the same Andrew Bailey(notes) who had Tommy John surgery in '05, and who required additional elbow maintenance last September. Not good. Bailey exited the game after the trainer's visit, and he reportedly won't be speaking to the media about the injury on Monday.
I've added Brian Fuentes(notes) in two leagues so far. Didn't feel great about it, but that's the recommended move. The guess here is that Fuentes is next in line in Oakland's bullpen hierarchy, though Grant Balfour(notes) and Brad Ziegler(notes) are lurking, too.
We don't yet have the full scoop on Bailey's injury, obviously. Test results coming soon. For the moment, just make sure to adjust your cheat sheets. If you've already drafted, proceed immediately to the free agent pool.
