Anyone have any news about whether Aquino had soreness, allowing Lyon to get the closer roll ?

Greg Aquino has lost his job as the Diamondbacks' closer, manager Bob Melvin said today.
Melvin doesn't believe that a player can't lose his job to injury. Aquino will set up Brandon Lyon initially. ''I wouldn't be surprised if Aquino is back in that role at some point. He's been coming along nicely, but the way it's going to start is Brandon's going to have the ball last,'' manager Bob Melvin said Sunday.
