"He's always been a guy who's able to go more than an inning for us, and we've got a lot of one-inning guys right now. We're going to need to need him to go more than an inning, so that two-inning stint is important for us."

"The fact he got on the mound lets me know he's close to getting on a rehab," manager Bo Porter told MLB.com Friday. "I've never been one to care much about a Major League guy rehabbing that was there for injury purposes. I'm more concerned about his oblique not hindering him to be able to throw all of his pitches, cover the bases and do all the things in which he would need to do."

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Bass has recorded two saves in as many opportunities, and his 5.06 ERA is somewhat misleading. Bass has allowed runs in just one of five appearances so far, when he allowed three in his second outing of the season.
