Joaquin Benoit Takes Over Philly Closer Job

George Kurtz Staff Writer April 11, 2017 5:30PM EDT
Detroit Tigers: Yes, KRod struggled and blew a save Friday versus Boston but I’m not sure why that led everyone to panicking and thinking he was automatically going to lose his job. He’s converted two saves since and the job is his unless he self-destructs. The team did call up one of their top prospects in Joe Jimenez. It wasn’t to replace KRod but rather to give the rest of the shaky bullpen a boost.

Los Angeles Angels: I’d be lying if I said I trust Mike Scioscia. I don’t, but it’s starting to look like even he knows that Cam Bedrosian is the best reliever he has and should be the closer. Will this change when Huston Street comes back from the disabled list? Possibly, but for now let’s hope that Scioscia will do what’s best for the team and not automatically reinstate Street into his former ninth inning role.
