Brewers | John Axford replaced as closer
Tue, 09 Apr 2013 09:56:51 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers RP John Axford has been replaced as the team's closer by RP Jim Henderson, at least until Axford can figure out his early-season struggles. Axford has given up four homers and has a 20.25 ERA in three appearances to start the year, giving up eight hits and six runs in 2 2/3 innings. "I told (Axford) that I want him to be our closer," manager Ron Roenicke told reporters. "How we think is the best way to get him back in that role is pretty much what we did with him last year - put him back in wherever it's going to be: sixth (inning), seventh, maybe eighth, and let him get his stuff back."
