Houston Astros RP Jose Veras is the leading candidate to open the season as the team's closer this season. He has only five saves and a 4.01 ERA in 327 career major league appearances. "If you're going to take a chance on someone to be a first-time closer, that's the type of guy you want," manager Bo Porter said. "We do have other pitchers that will get an opportunity to pitch late in the game, whether it's (Rhiner) Cruz, who had a really good winter league, or (Hector) Ambriz. There are others who will get a look, but Veras has the experience right now and is the front-runner."

That process was ongoing as of Wednesday, Oct. 31, leaving open several possibilities, including Veras being claimed by another club before he has a chance to reach the open market.
