Manager Cito Gaston said it was "more than likely" that Downs will close while Ryan is sidelined. - rotowire

Its not a long article, heres pretty much the rest. (Mlive.com)

"Leyland would not be pinned down on a role for Zumaya, saying only that he would be 'used from the sixth inning on' and adding, 'I'll have to take a look at him.' Though, the Tigers' ideal setup and closer relievers are Fernando Rodney, Ryan Perry and a healthy Zumaya."

Before the game tonight Cito refused to say who would close. When asked if he would call up Accardo who has 3 saves already for Las Vegas (they already called up a starter to fill in for Romero but did not call up anyone yet to take Ryan's spot) Cito said that he prefers to use a long relief guy in this role until Ryan gets back (what the hell does this mean??).

My bet is that he will use both Downs and Frasor and even occasionally will use League if he pulls it together. If Ryan is out for just a short while I don't believe that a single guy will be named to replace him. If Ryan is out for an extended period then there will be one guy.

The Jays have a 2 run lead in the 8th so we will get some indication tonight.

Looks like it's Downs tonight. He's warming up in the 9th.

So you're asking a redundant question in one breath and then putting down the info provided in this thread the next? :-?

Actually, I think a healthy BJ Ryan is rock solid. He's obviously not healthy, ie on the DL, and once he proves his health he'll close no ifs about it.

Actually he said look 1 page back not go look at page 1 :)

Downs = money ;-D

He was already producing for people in deeper leagues with the K's and stats now has the saves to go along with it.
