Cubs | Pedro Strop could close in 2014

The Chicago Cubs may consider using RP Pedro Strop as their closer next season. Entering play Sunday, Aug. 11, he had not been scored upon in 17 of his 18 appearances since joining the team. "He seems to be able to handle the eighth inning just fine," manager Dale Sveum said. "You just never know. That's a long way away. Hopefully, you have seven closers out there." Strop is currently serving as the set-up man and is unlikely to see any save opportunities during the rest of this season unless CL Kevin Gregg is unavailable.
