I was wrong. My bit of FAAB fell way short.

He won't be supplanting Soto this week.

Tests positive for COVID-19
May 20, 2022
Vest was placed on the injured list Friday after he tested positive for COVID-19, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
It seemed likely that Vest was in the league's COVID-19 protocols after he was placed on the injured list without a designation Friday. Since he's tested positive for the virus he'll need to clear the league's protocols before he's eligible to rejoin the team.

Faced with a middle-reliever roster crunch, I had to choose between Vest and Chafin and chose Chafin.

That's okay, I can always buy Vest back with a bit of FAAB on Monday.

But do I want to?

Detroit Tigers — Gregory Soto was handed a 2 run lead going into the 9th last night, and while the box score doesn’t look bad, it masks the fact that he hit the first two batters he faced, and walked a third. Will Vest came in to put out the fire, and struck out both batters he faced, preserving the win and Soto’s ERA. Vest hasn’t allowed a hit in 7 appearances in May, and kept that going to earn his first career save. Expect that to change, as a near Houdini will turn some heads in Detroit. After the game manager AJ Hinch said that Soto was “struggling with the strike zone” and the stats bear that out, with Soto only striking out 9 batters on the season compared with 8 walks. It’s too early to move Soto out as closer, but the early hook is never good to see, and it may be time to handcuff him with Michael Fulmer. 

Updated hierarchy: Soto | Fulmer | Vest.
