Joakim Soria, Detroit Tigers
The Detroit Tigers and great closer seems like an oxymoron, but it is true. Soria has stepped in for the injured Joe Nathan and dominated ninth innings.
If not for two runs allowed against the Cleveland Indians, Soria would be right with Miller with a 0.00 ERA. Soria owners will just have to settle for a 1.13 ERA (what a shame).
He is also 2-0 and 11-for-11 in save opportunities. Soria supports a 0.56 WHIP and has struck out 13 batters and walked just three in 16 innings.
