Jose Veras to Detroit.

per MLBTradeRumors...
The Tigers acquired reliever Jose Veras from the Astros, tweets Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports. The Astros received outfielder Danry Vasquez and a player to be named later, tweets Brian McTaggart of the Houston Chronicle.

does Veras close over Benoit?
I know the Tigers have been looking at multiple guys for the bullpen, including some og the bigger name closers. (read interest in Joe Nathan). but I don't know if I would want Veras closing over Benoit.

EDIT: did a search on twitter and found this from Tigers beat writer.
Jason Beck ‏@beckjason 49s

#Tigers press release quotes Dave Dombrowski saying Veras complements the roles of Benoit, Smyly. So Benoit remains the closer.

So is it Cisnero in Houston? I understand that there won't be a ton of chances, but saves are saves...

the last time the Tigers had Jose V closing it didn't turn out very good. now that the Tigers have a Jose V again, they are likely going to stick with him just in the set up role.

similar feeling with frieri tonite as well. damnit!!




=------------------
My closers include: romo, betancourt, frieri, and cishek...


who would have thought cishek would be my best closer (as of late)... marlins have been winning games ever since stantons came back, ive noticed.

I almost NEVER see Romo play due to giants sucking ding.... betancourts been in and out with injuries... and frieri is a slump right now.

At least Strop wasn't in your lineup. 5 ER in 1/3 of an inning. Ouch. I wonder if it will impact his odds of winning the closer job if Gregg is dealt.
