Blue Jays | Koch to Compete for Closer’s Job

Ian Harrison, of Bluejays.MLB.com, reports Toronto Blue Jays RP Billy Koch will be given a chance to compete for the closer's job, although he hasn't been told what his role will be. Koch has 163 career saves, but only 19 of those have come in the last two years. Despite losing a few miles off his fastball, Koch says he has learned to pitch and not just throw. "Velocity doesn't really mean anything," said Koch. "It's all about location."
