Mariners | Brandon League could return to closer's role

Seattle Mariners manager Eric Wedge said Sunday, June 10, that RP Brandon League could soon be returned to the closer's role. League has pitched well in six non-save situations since his demotion from the closer's role, posting a 1.35 ERA with three holds in six games since May 28. "The reason we went with everybody in the bullpen instead of just one guy when we pulled Brandon back is I didn't want to put that heat on one guy," Wedge said. "And I still feel that way. Truth of the matter is, we still have a lot of young kids in the bullpen. If things keep on track with Brandon and he gets another shot to close, that doesn't mean (RP Tom Wilhelmsen) or somebody else won't get a chance to closer from time to time. You want to have options."
