Oakland closer Andrew Bailey, the 2009 American League rookie of the year, appears headed to the disabled list after being diagnosed with an intercostal (rib) strain.

Bailey hasn't pitched since July 20, sidelined by back spasms. But, as he told MLB.com, "Once the back spasms kinda relaxed and got pushed aside, my ribs started hurting." He was examined by the Rangers' medical staff in Arlington and given the diagnosis.

If Bailey does go on the DL, Michael Wuertz and Craig Breslow look like candidates to close.
