The Dude wrote:anyone have an update on Wickman? My reliever staff has been decimated - Mota and Jones now closing by committee, Percival on the DL forever, Cincinatti closing by committee... is this thing serious, or will he be back within the week?
First of all, Mota will regain the closer job once he'll throw some inning sto get his feet wet again. No way they'll platoon him woth Jones.
Wagner will be the official closer in a couple of days in Cinci. He's simply the best pitcher they have in the bullpen and he's gonna be a fine closer in the near future.
As for the Indians... Wickman was suppose to be available today... so we'll see.
