Welcome to the Blue, Zach Neal!

Considering last nights roller-coaster-of-a-game you shouldn't be surprised by this move. After all, our bullpen arms are a bit overtaxed.

Jansen said he's healthy and is working through some mechanical kinks with pitching coach Rick Honeycutt. Manager Dave Roberts said, from everything he hears from his staff, Jansen is "100 percent healthy." 
"Yeah, I'm fine. Slow start," said Jansen. "Owings got me. It stinks, but nobody's going to feel sorry for me. Nobody wants to get beat, nobody wants to blow saves, nobody wants to lose games.
