With Rondon out, Chamberlain will be Tigers' setup man

Bruce Rondon will soon undergo Tommy John surgery and won't come back to the bullpen until next season. It might even be two years before Rondon returns to his full fire-balling form, and that leaves a hole at the back end of the bullpen for the Detroit Tigers. It's not a gaping hole, however.
