Bottom of the Ninth: Out of His League

Seattle Mariners: After surrendering 6 ER and 13 baserunners in 4 appearances, Brandon League is out as the closer in Seattle. His 13/12 K/BB is not going to cut it, and his 7.6% swinging strike rate and career-worst 45.8% zone percentage don’t offer much hope moving forward. However, his trade value is close to zero for the Mariners if he isn’t closing, so he should find himself...
