How about Betancourt?

Is it official? Davis or Betancourt?

Many depth charts have Betancourt as the next in line.

I responded to this post in the Baseball Leftovers forum, but am copying it here.

Yes, Carmona has officially been ousted at closer for the time being; however, the Indians still would like him to develop into the role for the future.

I think everyone is really jumping the gun when signing Davis, though. Getting him right now is merely speculative, as he and Betancourt are the favorites to take over as closer. I'd assume people are going after Davis rather than Betancourt since Davis is the only reliever in the Tribe pen with a save right now (it's worth noting that he picked up the save when Betancourt was unavailable to pitch). Refer to this quote from the Akron Beacon Journal (http://www.ohio.com/mld/beaconjournal/15213748.htm)
Akron Beacon Journal wrote:In the meantime, the likely candidates to close are Rafael Betancourt and Jason Davis, at least that was the case on Sunday.

``We'll see how it goes and take it day by day,'' said Wedge of his choices for closer the rest of the season.

Asked whether he would pick one reliever to close and stick with him, Wedge said, ``We have to have more extensive conversations about that.''

Personally, my money is still on Betancourt. Between the two, he is the superior pitcher. ;-D
