Even if Rauch were guaranteed the closer role anyone considering dealing him? I am a little concerned about his fly ball tendencies in Arizona and think his ERA could very well balloon. Hard sell right now considering he's not definitely the closer, but if he nails down a few saves who is going to shop him?

Well O-Hudson just got hurt and the D-Backs just traded their top MI prospect away.

I hope the Dodgers can take advantage.

With Rauch no longer on the team, the Nationals will turn to Joel Hanrahan as the closer for the rest of the season. Hanrahan is second among Major League relievers in strikeouts with 65. In the last four weeks, Hanrahan has a 1.80 ERA in his last 13 outings.

Hanrahan plans to get advice from Cordero on being a closer. The two will meet up in Los Angles later this week.

"I'm excited. Obviously, I wish Chad was here as the closer. He is a good friend of mine," Hanrahan said. "[Being a closer] was one of my goals. I didn't think it would happen this year. It's something I look forward to. Hopefully, I can do a good job at it."
