Here are this week’s results. There will be an amendment to the Algorithm tomorrow on dealing with injury returning pitchers that will be posted at USAToday.com. The only job change for the week was Jose Valverde. In reality there are status changes every day this early in the season so follow me on twitter @pdicaprioFP911 for daily updates.
