      Manager Pete Mackanin said the "field is wide open" when asked who would close for the Phillies next season, CSN Philadelphia reports. Hernandez is considered a front-runner for the closing gig, but the Phillies brought in Ernesto Frieri, Edward Mujica, and Andrew Bailey as non-roster invitees to compete for a job as well.

      Phillies' David Hernandez: Could take over closing duties in Philadelphia

      Hernandez is the likely candidate to take over closing duties for the Phillies after Ken Giles was traded to Houston on Wednesday, CSN Philadelphia reports. Hernandez was one of the better setup men in baseball before missing all of 2014 recovering from Tommy John surgery. Now further removed from surgery, the Phillies are hoping he will regain his old form. The team has not officially commented on their plan for the ninth inning now that Giles is gone, but Hernandez does look like the best option out of the current group of relievers.
