The Los Angeles Angles look like they have two capable options to close out games now as Scott Downs and Ernesto Frieri each picked up two saves last week. Downs is still unscored upon in 16 innings this season and has a 0.88 WHIP while Frieri has 11 scoreless innings since coming over to the National League with 23 strikeouts. Frieri has the better arm, as shown with no hits allowed since coming to the Angels, but with a lefty (Downs) and righty (Frieri) option, manager Mike Scioscia can alternate closers depending who is coming up in the ninth inning.
Seattle Mariner’s closer Brandon League was removed from the closer last week after blowing two saves within an eight day period and allowing seven runs in his last 3 1/3 innings of work. While the team has not announced who will replace League in the ninth inning, there are several different options to pick from.
Tom Wihelmsen: has seven holds along with a 4.44 ERA and 1.40 WHIP with 30 strikeouts in 24 1/3 innings. Has not b...
