Eddie Lack hasn’t played in almost two months due to a combination of performance, injury, and illness. For Jorge Alves to get the call to back up in an NHL game was phenomenal and heart-warming, truly a story for the ages, and one that Canes fans should carry with them forever.
Even if Lack had been available he would have been coming into Saturday’s game against the Lightning from a long layoff, and it probably wouldn’t have affected the outcome. But while Ward is 5-2-0 in back-to-back games over the last year, three games in four days with travel is a tough grind on the entire Denver Broncos Authentic Jersey team, and the starting goaltender isn’t typically asked to shoulder that entire burden.
Now they’re looking for a low-cost starting pitcher (they Dez Bryant Game Jersey could wait out the Jason Hammel market), a reliever, and a utilityman. The Royals have some interest in bringing back Luke Hochevar, but are unsure when he’ll be able to return from thoracic outlet syndrome surgery in August.
If Cafardo is right, that is some good news for Royals fans. The Wade Davis trade will be the only deal that moves a veteran member of the core. It also means that despite Dayton Moore’s public pronouncements that he likes the starting rotation depth, the team is still looking to add pitchers.
Currently the rotation would feature Danny Duffy, Ian Kennedy, Yordano Ventura, and Jason Vargas. Other options would include Mike Minor, Matt Strahm, Chris Young, and Josh Staumount. The starting pitching free agent market has been notoriously weak, but there are a few options out there that could be upgrades at a reasonable price.
