McClung to Close?

Postby red_foot » Thu Jul 06, 2006 12:02 pm

Anyone know what the timetable is on this or if it is even going to happen? He would have a ton of value in my league because of the SP designation in yahoo.

Apparently he's in AAA right now closing games in preparation.

"Could be," manager Joe Maddon said. "We'll see how well he's doing." A former starter, McClung has converted to closing at Triple-A and has pitched relatively well so far. Since someone has to get saves in Tampa Bay, he has some fantasy potential.

Not sure if he gets to close right away, but he should get called up pretty soon.

I've heard late-July or early-August as the time frame for a call-up and that he would get the opportunity to close (though by no means is he guaranteed the job).

well right now Meadows is doing a fairly decent job and Mcclung's results have been somewhat mixed, or so I've heard. If you check out the "closer watch" topic in the "baseball leftovers" forum you'll see updates on this constantly.
you can't live the dream, if you don't play the game
