St. Louis Cardinals, Marc Rzepczynski up, Kyle McClellan down

St. Louis Cardinals- Summoned in a tie game in the 8th, Kyle McClellan gave up 3 runs and got the lost last night.  McClellan has had a tough couple weeks and the Cardinals have been looking to Marc Rzepczynski, who they acquired from the Blue Jays last month, later in games.  Hierarchy change: Marc Rzepczynski to 2nd in line, replacing Kyle McClellan.

St. Louis Cardinals, Jason Motte blows it, Fernando Salas too

St. Louis Cardinals- Jason Motte won the closer’s job in early September after an incredible string of 33 consecutive outings without allowing an earned run.  But he’s been shaky of late, and walked 3 of the 5 batters he faced last night, contributing to the Cardinals 9th inning collapse.  Fernando Salas couldn’t salvage the damage, but the Cardinals may go back to their original closer in the season’s final week.  Jason Motte to Hot Seat.

Florida Marlins, Leo Nunez suspended, Steve Cishek to close

Florida Marlins- ALERT!  Leo Nunez has been suspended and placed on the restricted list, and is reportedly on his way back to his home in the Dominican Republic.  The Marlins turned to Steve Cishek to close when Nunez was given a week off last month, and he will likely get first crack at the suddenly-vacant closer’s position.  Hierarchy change: Steve Cishek to Closer, Edward Mujica to Set-up, Mike Dunn to 2nd in line.
