Boy, is the Detroit closer situation one to avoid altogether or what?. Sparks and German will both get opps and there's also Spurling who might get some as well. And if the Tigers aren't playing Tampa Bay or Baltimore, the save opps won't be coming very often.
Matt Anderson will have to work his way back to Detroit. I wouldn't think that he would be thrust immediately back to the closer role, but he would definitely get every opportunity to close as soon as he is ready.
