Cubs | Manager stays quiet on who closer will be daily
Mon, 29 Apr 2013 17:08:11 -0700

Chicago Cubs manager Dale Sveum does not inform his relief pitchers who his designated closer will be on a daily bases, and instead goes with the best matchup. "It's been working," Sveum said Monday. "I'm not going to say it's a fix-all and that you don't want to name a closer. You definitely don't want to rock the boat when things are going good in the back of the bullpen when everybody is healthy and ready to go that night. It could be one of four guys. It depends on the matchups."
