Athletics likely to open season with Tyler Clippard closing
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

The Athletics will likely use Tyler Clippard as the closer to open the year, according to MLB.com.

With Sean Doolittle expected to be sidelined following a shoulder injury, Clippard is in line to take over the ninth inning role. Manager Bob Melvin seemed to agree, though he wouldn't make the announcement official just yet. "We have several guys that have closed," Melvin said. "I'm not going to say right now that [Clippard] is the closer, but he's definitely a guy we're looking to potentially be the guy coming out in the ninth."

While Clippard has mostly been used as a setup man during his career, he did save 32 games with the Nationals back in 2012. He didn't lose his job due to ineffectiveness, and has been solid in any role over his career. 

Clippard said he would take on whatever role the team asks. "Whatever role they want me to do, I will do wholeheartedly and embrace," Clippard said.

The 30-year-old posted a 2.18 ERA over 70 1/3 innings last year.

Athletics, Tyler Clippard avoid arbitration
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

The Athletics have avoided arbitration with reliever Tyler Clippard, the team announced.

Clippard is set to make $8.3 million next season, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. Clippard submitted an $8.85 million salary, while the Athletics countered with $7.77 million. The 29-year-old Clippard was acquired by the club during the offseason. He posted a 2.18 ERA over 70 1/3 innings last season.

With Sean Doolittle sidelined to begin the season, Clippard could open the year as the team's closer.

Several candidates to fill in for Sean Doolittle
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

With Athletics closer Sean Doolittle slated to miss the start of the season with a slight tear in his rotator cuff, the team will look at several candidates to fill in, reports the San Francisco Chronicle.

Newly-acquired Tyler Clippard and setup man Ryan Cook are the top contenders, with Eric O'Flaherty also a possibility, the report said.

There is no timetable for Doolittle's return. Doctors believe Doolittle won't need surgery, and have prescribed rest and a strengthening program, the paper said.

Report: Athletics' Tyler Clippard files for $8.85 million
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Report: Nationals discussing Detwiler, Clippard with clubs
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

The Nationals are talking to other clubs about Ross Detwiler and Tyler Clippard, according to FoxSports.com.

With David Robertson and Andrew Miller off the market, Clippard becomes a much more intriguing trade piece. The 29-year-old posted a 2.18 ERA over 70 1/3 innings last season. Clippard has been a workhorse over his career, tossing at least 70 innings in each of the past five seasons. He's eligible for arbitration, and will become a free-agent following 2015.

Detwiler posted a 4.00 ERA out of the bullpen last season. He has experience as a starter, but likely won't reprise that role if he remains with the Nationas. Detwiler, 28, is also eligible for arbitration, and would become a free-agent following the season.
