New Closer for Texas?

Postby LetsGoBucs » Fri Jun 20, 2003 9:09 am

I heard a rumor that Fransisco Cordero will take over as the closer for Texas once Urbina is gone. Any truth to this??

That's what it looks like. Cordero has really been stinking it up lately. I don't mean just a little. The guy has been terrible. When the Rangers trade Urbina, Cordero is supposed to take over, but with the way he's been pitching, it's possible that Aaron Fultz or Jay Powell might get a shot. Rumor has it that Jeff Zimmerman will be back after the All-Star break. He could take the role as well. The Ranger's bullpen is a mess right now. Isn't it always? %-6

Powell is mop-up guy #1 late in games. Cordero should be pretty good, since he did well last year in the role. Maybe his temperament is more suited to closing than setting up.

If he fails, I'd bet FUltz gets the bulk of the work until Zimmerman or someone else begins to stand out.
