“Bob and I talked to Matt,” Trammell said. “He’s going to be used in other situations. I’m not having a closer for a while.”
This is like a Leno spot in the waiting. Do the Tigers really need a closer?
Ironically, Anderson had saves in all three Tigers victories. I thought they’d stick with him because they wanted to boost his trade value (In my mind, German is the eventual closer), but I guess they have to give him some innings to get his ERA down.
