As for his replacement, I like Lowe to take most of the save opps because he has the kind of power makeup that is well suited for the closer role, and also induces the ground ball which limits home runs. Second in line is Green who is a more extreme ground ball pitcher. Still, I don't see how any of these guys can be more than emergency options. If Putz is out for a significant amount of time, maybe Batista makes his way back to the closer role? If he's back in a couple weeks, I'm sure they'll just play the hot hand.
