Engel hurt again, Tepera progressing

Has to be frustrating for Engel.  Seems like it will take a full offseason for him to heal.

Might as well just shut him down for the rest of the year.

It is particularly frustrating because he was improving as a hitter as well as being  a good defensive outfielder.

Starling Marte or Kris Bryant would have looked pretty fine acquisition at deadline, instead of having to depend on scrubs like Goodwin.

I’m guessing that the FO agrees with that.

Vaughn plays an adequate RF, which allows Eloy to stay in LF (per his demands of not wanting to DH). 

So why not go Sheets/Burger at DH, or hell, Sheets/Yermin?

I think Sheets/Vaughn is your DH platoon for the postseason. Leury is the primary RF if Engel can't go.

Engel has not shown he belongs on the playoff squad. His rehab was a disaster.

I will be convinced that LaRussa won’t start Goodwin when I see the roster without him.

But that’s also why they kept pushing him to come back before he was really healthy.

Yermin hasn’t played a game in AAA in awhile and his playing time was cut a lot previously. He’s not even on Charlotte’s active roster and is on “temporary inactive list”.  Not exactly sure what deal is but I think org has moved on.

Tepera running out of time to get back and knock off the rust.  He's a guy we need.

If he can come back tomorrow, he can get 1 inning tomorrow and then 1 each in two of the final 3 games and he should be OK.

What is the update on Tepera? Been out 20 days now

Last I heard he was throwing pens and getting close.  I expected him to be activated within the past few days.  Hopefully Friday and we can get him 2 appearances this weekend to knock off the rust.
