White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen indicated again Friday that he will consider using Neal Cotts over Bobby Jenks in save situation.
"I’m going to go by committee the way I have since I got this job," Guillen said. "We’ve had (Billy) Koch, (Shingo) Takatsu, Hermanson, Bobby Jenks — why not somebody else? I’m going to go with the guy throwing the ball better." Well, Guillen's never actually used a committee unless he's had to. What he has done is show that he's quick to change closers. That Jenks is in the doghouse now is partially the result of him showing up in poor condition. His velocity has been OK, but his command hasn't, and Cotts looks like the better pitcher right now. Jenks remains the clear favorite for saves in the White Sox pen, even if he might not have the closer's role on Opening Day. Pairing the two relievers in fantasy leagues would be a good strategy.
