"He had a good outing, and right now we feel like he's probably very close," general manager Jeff Luhnow said. "He's going to be down for a few days after pitching [Sunday] night.

Anthony Bass could return following weekend

"At that point, we'll make a decision on whether we want to see more or rather he's ready to come up," general manager Jeff Luhnow said. "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."

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

"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."

There still isn't a clear timetable for his return to action, but Bass could move fairly quickly once he goes out on rehab.

by Marty Gitlin | 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.

Patrick Schuster the other half of Anthony Bass deal


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Schuster had a 1.83 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 9.1 strikeouts per nine innings over 55 appearances in the California League (high Class A) last season.

"I have a little history with him," Padres general manager Josh Byrnes told MLB.com. "We drafted him with Arizona. He's progressed through professional ball. The last two years he's been a reliever and we had a really good report on him this summer from the Cal League. He's gotten some lefties out and actually has pitches for right-handed hitters and also keeps the ball on the ground. He was worth a shot in the Rule 5."
