Reds | Team will likely go with closer-by-committee

Justice B. Hill, of Cincinnati.Reds.MLB.com, reports the Cincinnati Reds will likely go with a closer-by-committee as they are lacking a dominant relief pitcher in their bullpen. "We've got guys who can get eight saves, 10 saves," Narron said before practice on Saturday morning. "David Weathers ran off a stretch last year -- what did he do, nine straight or something for us? He's capable of that. But when you start asking a guy to save 45 or 50 games or whatever, that stuff just isn't there." Relief pitchers Weathers, Mike Stanton, Eddie Guardado and Kerry Ligtenberg are all veteran relievers who could take a turn as closer this season.
