Say Goodbye To: Burke Badenhop, Nick Masset

After getting a decent amount of work in the Marlins bullpen earlier in the season, Burke Badenhop only appeared in four games over the past two weeks. In those games, he was far less dominant than his earlier matchups, where he gave up only one run over 9-2/3 innings, with a save as well.

Reds reliever Nick Masset has been a disappointment thus far in 2010. Originally drafted by the Roadrunners in the 7th round of the 2010 minor league draft, Masset’s season got off to a rocky start, giving up 5 earned runs on opening day, including a grand slam to Yadier Molina. Masset has been shaky ever since, although he has secured the random vulture win.

Meet the New Guys: Burke Badenhop, Sean Marshall

RHP Burke Badenhop was acquired as a hedge against closer Leo Nunez. Badenhop already has one save this season, and may get more if Nunez is tired or becomes ineffective. Badenhop said he was pleasantly surprised manager Fredi Gonzalez kept him in Sunday’s game after he entered in the seventh inning and retired Philadelphia 3B Placido Polanco, a right-handed hitter. Instead of going with LHP Renyel Pinto or LHP Dan L. Meyer — both of whom have struggled this year — Gonzalez stuck with Badenhop, who retired two tough lefty hitters, 2B Chase Utley and 1B Ryan Howard, to end the seventh and open the eighth, respectively. “I thought maybe they’d bring Pinto in,” said Badenhop, who has an 0.91 ERA in nine innings over five appearances. “It was nice of him to leave me in there. I kept the ball down and got some outs.” Badenhop is a viable middle reliever for the deepest of leagues that use true middle men at this point. He isn’t a candidate for saves yet, though.

Formerly a starting prospect, Sean Marshall has been getting key late-inning assignments for the Cubs, and may potentially become a candidate for saves if closer Carlos Marmol doesn’t improve his control. Marshall was called upon to get the final out in an ugly seventh inning in a loss to the Mets on Monday. Marshall allowed a hit before getting the out and threw nine pitches. His ERA is 2.16 on the year. Marshall has a blown save and a loss already this season and isn’t likely to join the starting rotation anytime soon. He has the stuff to succeed in such a role, but in his current role, he’s just a low-end NL-only option. (CBS Sports)
