• The late-inning, righty bullpen role to get the ball to left-hander Rex Brothers and right-hander LaTroy Hawkins is up for grabs. Wilton Lopez, Matt Belisle, Adam Ottavino and Chad Bettis are possible options. But Weiss is confident Lopez can rebound from some struggles in 2013, when he went 3-4 with a 4.06 ERA in a team-high 75 appearances. Lopez, 30, had some bad luck with ground balls early, then struggled when he put pressure on himself to make up for the misfortune, Weiss said. There was also a family issue in Lopez's native Nicaragua, Weiss added.
"He was really good before last year," Weiss said of Lopez. "He never shies away from competition. He always wants the ball. Usually, he tried to talk me into sending him out for another inning. Good, bad or indifferent, he wanted the ball and wanted to go out again. You can sit here and talk about that stuff, but that stuff is very valuable, that type of mentality."
