When asked Wednesday what it would take for John Axford to get his closer job back, Brewers manager Ron Roenicke replied, "probably not much."
Valverde not getting any of these close calls.
Ryan Boyer @RyanPBoyer
#Tigers say Valverde's splitter is back, but he didn't throw a single one. But, 1-2-3 9th. Butler flys out short of warning track to end it.

Nothing but fastballs from Valverde, but the #Tigers waste no time giving him the save. Pitches perfect 9th for 1st save.

Brandon League blew his first save of 2013 in the Dodgers' extra-innings loss to the Mets on Wednesday.
League entered the ninth inning with a 3-2 lead, but a leadoff double by Mike Baxter was followed two batters later by David Wright's two-out single. Blown save notwithstanding, League is still a passable closer despite the fact that a better option exists on his own team in Kelvin Herrera. With the money the Dodgers are paying him, League won't be removed from the ninth-inning role due to one rough outing.
