New York Mets RP Scott Rice was used in the ninth inning of a tied ball game Thursday, April 25, because manager Terry Collins doesn't want to overuse RP Bobby Parnell by using him late in tied games. The Los Angeles Dodgers had a string of left-handed hitters coming to bat, too. Rice ended up letting the Dodgers take the lead and eventually win. Parnell later entered in the inning to clean up the damage, and he let an inherited runner score. Collins is also trying not to overuse RPs Scott Atchison and Brandon Lyon. Rice has entered in the eighth inning or later in each of his last five outings.
Fantasy Tip: Parnell is the team's unquestioned closer, but Rice's utilization late in games shows Collins' confidence in the southpaw. Rice is solid against lefties, and he induces plenty of ground-ball outs, but don't expect him to be used in any save situations.

New York Mets RPs Pedro Feliciano, Scott Rice and Robert Carson are all in competition for a spot in the team's bullpen, but there is a chance that none of them crack the roster. RP Josh Edgin is the lone lefty that is secured a spot in the bullpen. RP Darin Gorski was sent to the minors and the team is stretching RP Aaron Laffey out as a starter. Carson may have the advantage since he's already on the 40-man roster. The team may choose to carry RP Jeurys Familia over these three, however.
