not sure.He's undecided if Betancourt will return to his closer's role. Said there's a chance he could ease him in. Last time, Betancourt returned he went right back to the 9th inning. However, the team was contending then, and Rex Brothers is clearly the closer of the future. Weiss said a lot will depend on how Betancourt does in his rehab game Thursday and how he Betancourt feels. The plan will be activated him Saturday. At that point, he won't have pitch in a big league game since July 14 at Los Angeles. He underwent an appendectomy on July 19. He has regained his strength after losing 8 pounds following the procedure. The plan is to throw one inning Thursday, fly to Baltimore on Friday then be activated on Saturday.
