Jose valverde was designated for assignment. #tigers
Tigers designated RHP Jose Valverde for assignment.
Valverde pitched well initially after being called up by the Tigers in late April, but it came crashing down of late, as he blew two of five save chances while posting a 13.50 ERA over his last eight appearances. He should be able to catch on elsewhere, but his days as a closer anywhere are surely over. Joaquin Benoit has taken over as the Tigers' closer.
at least rotoworld mentions that he pitched well initially.
I want to ask a question, but at this point I can't help but feel like everyone right now will agree on only one outcome.
does he catch on with another team, and what are the chances he can again be a closer somewhere? while I have to imagine he will not be closing for a contender, but I still think he could be a closer, even on a bad team.
