Though it seemed even as recent as a week ago that rookie Rondon was in line to take the Tigers’ closing job, a 7.36 ERA with five walks in 3.2 innings have sent the team and media into a frenzy. Every reliever on the club has since had their name brought up as a solution for the great closer conundrum, and some have even suggested starter Rick Porcello would be well-suited for the role.
Free agent options are sparse with weeks remaining until teams head north for the regular season. Valverde, Francisco Rodriguez, and Brian Wilson could potentially each be had for little cost, but they all have glaring issues that have kept them unsigned to this point.
