1a). Casilla
1b). Jensen

3). Thayer
4). Downs
(don't roster either of these two)
(In reference to an Aaron Hill for David Price swap)

My apologies, I just assumed you made a typo.

I would imagine Frasor is next in line for the 9th inning...

thats not what cbs and rotoworld are reporting

The Blue Jays have removed Francisco Cordero from the closer role and named Casey Janssen as his replacement.
Perfectly understandable, as Cordero blew his third save of the season on Tuesday night and now has an ugly 9.53 ERA over 11 1/3 innings. We're a bit surprised to see Janssen get the nod, but the Jays probably prefer to keep Jason Frasor and Darren Oliver in their traditional roles, especially with Sergio Santos (shoulder) likely only a couple of weeks away from returning. Still, with a a 3.21 ERA since the start of the 2010 season, Janssen should be a pretty reliable bridge. Feel free to pick him up in all fantasy formats.

Well, assuming the Blue Jays don't score any runs in the top half of the 9th, we'll probably find out who they have in mind as their next closer fairly soon...
