Hmm Devine in for the save in the 9th while Ziegler set him up in the 8th?

Devine has had an awesome season with a 0.62 ERA and has always had closer stuff, but the most interesting part about today's outing was that Brad Ziegler was used in the eighth inning. Ziegler is best used in a multi-inning relief ace type of role and Devine profiles better in the ninth with his fastball-slider combination, so this could be the sign of a real change. If you're looking for saves, Devine makes a great last week addition. He's also worth a big bid in any keeper leagues in which he's unowned, as you'll have the whole off-season to try and get a read on the situation.
