Here are this week’s results. So far CIA is a perfect 7-7 on job changes.

Pitcher CIA Result Comments
Tommy Hunter Hold He is doing very well despite a few tightrope saves.
Ernesto Frieri Auto Lose He has mercifully been demoted.
Josh Fields Auto Lose  
Chad Qualls Auto Lose It looks like he is no longer part of the committee after his last BS, but we will wait another week.
Anthony Bass Auto Hold The fact that he has two saves with a 2.13 K/9 says it all
Sergio Santos Auto Lose  
Brett Cecil Auto Lose He hasn’t been good, it is not clear if he has a share of the job and Janssen will be back soon.
John Axford Lose Skills are still horrible, but he is 8/9, one SV short of “auto hold.”
Fernando Rodney Lose A BS and poor skills change his status.
Joakim Soria Auto Hold  
Grant Balfour Lose It was a bad week.
Koji Uehara Auto Hold  
Greg Holland Auto Hold  
Joe Nathan Lose This is an upgrade and he will most likely soon be safe.
Glen Perkins Hold  
Matt Lindstrom Auto Lose If he hasn’t lost the job by the time you read this it will be a minor miracle.
David Robertson Auto Hold  
Shawn Kelley Lose After the CIA change last week he got “lose” status.
Luke Gregerson Auto Lose Johnson is reportedly back in the mix, and as soon as he gets a SV Gregerson will likely be done.
Sean Doolittle  Auto Lose He is likely out of the committee, and we are declaring him a “hit.”
National League    
Craig Kimbrel Auto Hold  
Francisco Rodriguez Auto Hold 11/11 in SV/SVO? Who saw that coming?
Trevor Rosenthal Auto Hold He is getting the job done, but BB are an issue so far.
Pedro Strop Auto Hold  
Addison Reed Hold  
Kenley Jansen Hold Just short of “auto hold” status.
Sergio Romo Auto Hold  
Steve Cishek Hold Probably a momentary drop in status, but if we had a nickel for every time we thought that…
Kyle Farnsworth Auto Hold Its early and only 2 SVO.
Rafael Soriano Auto Hold Only 4 SVO but perfect so far.
Huston Street Auto Hold  
Jonathan Papelbon Lose After a great week he is only one SV away from “auto hold.”
Jason Grilli Auto Lose Mercifully hits the DL, giving him a stay of execution.
Mark Melancon Hold His case will be a good test of the new CIA criterion for injured closers.
Latroy Hawkins Auto Hold Rex who?
Jose Veras     
JJ Hoover    
Jim Johnson    
Jose Valverde    
Sean Doolittle    
Shawn Kelley    
Ernesto Frieri
