hard to say...he needs to prove he can stay healthy first...i think right now Perry is more likely

This is obviously a bench spot.


Considering Perez was sent down to AAA, yep.

anybody think r. soriano might end up with some saves this year? m-gonz hasn't looked very good this spring and soriano is a capable reliever when healthy.

It could happen, but it won't be a while. Soriano isn't all the way back from his injury, nor do we know if he ever will be. Gonzalez is a vet (so I don't put too much stock in his ST performance) and healthy again, so I think he has a solid hold on the job even if he struggles. I tend to think he's just getting back into a groove, trying out his pitches and testing his arm out, but I'm also biased as a Bravos fan.

Without a doubt but the key is his health.

What's his source? Sounds like speculation to me. Any one of us could have written that sentence.

Tiger manager Jim Leyland announced Wednesday that Fernando Rodney will open the season as the team's closer.
Well, sort of. "Does that mean he’s going to come in every time? I don’t know that," Leyland said. "I wouldn’t make a big deal that I named Fernando Rodney the closer, because I really haven’t. But he’s going to close that first game, hopefully." If anything, he's the best bet to snag saves while Brandon Lyon figures out his control issues
