Most Likely to be Moved into Closer Role

Steals/Saves Ain't Got No Face. Closers and speed talk. Which MRs are moving in? Which schmohawk speedster is getting steals at MI?

Most Likely to be Moved into Closer Role

Postby ohbilly2134 » Fri Mar 22, 2013 12:27 pm

As I did several times last season, I'm asking for the top 4 of the following RP's who are most likely to be named their respective teams' closer (or closer for any team, in the cases of Valverde and Wilson) sometime in the near future (based on everything from job stability, age, team necessity, likelihood of injury, etc...):

Jose Valverde
Brian Wilson
Andrew Bailey
Jared Burton
Al Alburquerque
David Hernandez
Sean Doolittle
Luke Gregerson
Wesley Wright
Mark Melancon
Stephen Pryor
Jon Rauch
Santiago Casilla
Joel Peralta
Francisco Rodriguez
Vinnie Pestano
Jeremy Affeldt
Dale Thayer
Kyle Fransworth
Mike Adams
Heath Bell
Brandon Lyon
Brad Lidge
Carter Capps
Javier Lopez

Ahhh, good to be back. Thanks!

My top 4 would be:

Al Al - he may be the closer
Pestano - injury questions in front of him already
Gregerson - question of when Street gets injured or traded
Doolittle - injuries or ineffectiveness
