Athletics | Andrew Bailey unlikely to be ready

Although there is no timetable for Oakland Athletics RP Andrew Bailey's (forearm) return to the mound, he is unlikely to be ready for Opening Day after straining his forearm Monday, March 14, according to MLB.com's Jane Lee. Fuentes, who has not given up a run in five outings this spring, is the likely candidate to take over the closer's role while Bailey recovers. However, the team could use a closer-by-committee approach when the season opens based on matchups. RPs Grant Balfour, Michael Wuertz, Brad Ziegler, Craig Breslow and Joey Devine could be possibilities.
