Angels | Kevin Jepsen wants closer's role
Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim RP Kevin Jepsen asked pitching coach Mike Butcher for another chance to close for the team after he blew a save opportunity Saturday, June 21. "I told Butch, 'Don't let that one outing change your decisions,' I want that opportunity," Jepsen said. "In that situation, I'm coming right after guys. I'm not going to walk a guy or shy away from contact."
Fantasy Tip: While it's nice that Jepsen isn't shying away from the pressure, it would be even nicer had he closed out the game Saturday. As it stands, Joe Smith will likely get another chance to show he can handle the ninth inning.
