Manager Clint Hurdle will reassess the closer situation between Corpas and Huston Street on Friday, Tracy Ringolsby of insidetherockies.com reports.
Recommendation: "I have a whole night and another day to figure things out," Hurdle said. "I am going to look at the tape, see the location of pitches, where we were setting up . . . You can do a lot of things when it's the best for the team." Closer Huston Street has gotten off to a bumpy start in Colorado, earning a 13.50 ERA and an OBA of .563 in four appearances. Corpas, on the other hand, has been solid in four of five relief appearances in 2009, and Hurdle has been known to swap closers at the first sign of trouble. Time to put Corpas back on your watchlist.
Looks like corpas might get that job sooner then later.
