McClung has the stuff to be a great closer, throws in the high 90's and always goes great for the first innings and then blows up.

Jackson will get some seasoning in the bullpen and be in the rotation after the allstar break.


Think E.Jax can turn it around?

are you familiar with the whole D-Ray system and if so can I ask you a couple questions?

wait a second. 6.57ERA and 1.86WHIP is not awsome against AAA batters.

Do you think McClung will be the eventual closer in TB? I read something about this on Rotoworld....

Jun 21 The St. Petersburg Times' Damian Cristodero reports Tampa Bay Devil Rays RP Edwin Jackson may be groomed as a future closer for the team.

Jun 20 Seth McClung has been optioned to Triple-A Durham with the intent on converting him to closing, the Associated Press reports.

Seth McClung, 25, Devil Rays: There is more than meets the eye with McClung. He touched 100 mph on the gun multiple times last year.

Jackson, 22, with a 97-mph fastball, had an up-and-down spring, going 1-1 with a 5.16 ERA and 16 strikeouts and a team-high 13 walks in 222/3 innings. He is 1-1 with a 4.50 ERA and 15 strikeouts in 14 innings for Durham, where Maddon said Jackson has worked on fastball location and consistency with his slider.

Things are brewing in TB :-°
