Orioles | Going with committee approach in ninth?
Fri, 16 Aug 2013 13:49:12 -0700

Baltimore Orioles manager Buck Showalter didn't say that RP Jim Johnson would be demoted from the closer's role after blowing three straight saves, but he mentioned that they have other options around him. It looks as though the team will go with a closer-by-committee in the ninth inning based on matchups, at least until Johnson can get back on track.
