News: Thayer (illness) will be available out of the bullpen Tuesday against the Dodgers, Dennis Lin of the Union-Tribune reports.
Impact: Thayer is said to be at less than 100 percent Tuesday, but his condition has improved from Monday where he was held out with a case of the stomach flu. With the recent shakeup to San Diego's bullpen, it remains to be seen which situations manager Bud Black will call on Thayer. However, Joaquin Benoit is the favorite to be the set-up man at this point.
