First, note that Tim Worrell and Dan Miceli are now closing, as Armando Benitez has injured himself and Chad Orvella has been optioned.
Now, here are the names I've been targeting as will-be-closers:
Fernando Rodney- will replace Todd Jones at some point...either when Jones collapses or is traded.
Joey Devine- Chris Reitsma? The Braves can do better, and this kid is their future.
Rafael Betancourt- Bob Wickman is not a fit closer for a team as good as the Indians. Look for Rafey to step up by mid-season. If not him, Francisco Cabrera and Guillermo Mota are other possibilities.
