Orioles | Tommy Hunter likely to close?

Now that the Seattle Mariners signed RP Fernando Rodney to be their closer, the chances of Baltimore Orioles RP Tommy Hunter serving as the closer to start the year have gone way up. The Orioles were one of the finalists to land Rodney for their bullpen. Hunter would like the chance to close if he's not a candidate for the starting rotation. Manager Buck Showalter has said RPs Darren O'Day and Ryan Webb won't be in line to pitch in the ninth on a regular basis. Baltimore continues to keep tabs on free-agent RPs Joel Hanrahan (Red Sox) and Andrew Bailey (Red Sox), however.
