Chicago Cubs: Veras out as Cubs Closer

First year Chicago Cubs manager Rick Renteria is pushing his buttons with Jose Veras. “Shaky outing, but he’s still our guy. It’s too early to decide anything like that,” Renteria said Friday night. “His stuff is there, but I think he just gets a little excited. He starts pulling some pitches. He overthrows pitches. He just has to find his rhythm.” After sleeping on it...

The Detroit Tigers made a perfect trade by acquiring Jose Veras from the Houston Astros yesterday. He fits the bill that was needed in every way imaginable, bolstering a bullpen that seems to be on the rebound. But are the Tigers done making moves?

Detroit Tigers Bolster Bullpen Crew With Jose Veras

It was always in the cards. It was just a matter of who, when, and how much.

Astros Take On Jose Veras Experiement

Jose Veras spent last season as a reliever for the Milwaukee Brewers, but in retrospect he was also something more: a year-long experiment on the value of those relievers a fan observes day-in and day-out.

Kartje: Veras' strikeout a pivotal moment

It's all too easy in baseball to get sucked into the little moments of drama sprinkled throughout a 162-game regular season. The bottom-of-the-ninth comebacks. The walk-off grand slams.
