DeMarcus Ware, as of now, has no surgery scheduled on his troublesome right elbow.
Ware missed three games this season, the first games he's missed in his career, due to the troublesome elbow. He's been expected to have surgery but it is unclear as to why it hasn't happened yet. He's about to have some offseason as the team not only wants him to have the surgery, but they also want him to restructure his deal and possibly take less money. He won't take the pay cut, but he'll probably be open to restructuring, especially given the time he could miss this summer by delaying the surgery.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Fernando Rodney has hit a recent rough patch, but said he's put it behind him.
Rodney's closing job is in danger right now, as they 38-year old has already blown a save and has given up in seven runs 3 1/3 innings. Carson Smith could be next in line for saves should Rodney be removed from the job, though Yoervis Medina is another option in the back of the bullpen. As a closer, Rodney will have to have a short term memory and put the issues behind him, as he has a great track record and the stuff is still there for him to succeed in the ninth inning.
