Blue Jays closer Brett Cecil wants to cut down on walk rate
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

As long as Brett Cecil can recover from his shoulder injury in time for the start of the season, he is going to be the Blue Jays' closer.

“Right now it would be Cecil,” manager John Gibbons said Sunday, per the Toronto Star. “Earlier in the spring it could have been (Aaron) Sanchez, but it’s probably not going to happen now.

“Cecil felt pretty good throwing (Saturday), so if everything moves in the right direction, he’ll be the guy. Then if something happens during the season, somebody takes over that role, good for them.”

Cecil did mention if he is going to be successful in the closer's role, he will need better fastball command so he doesn't have to rely on his curveball as much. Cecil walked a career-worst 4.6 batters per nine innings in 2014.

“If I’m going to be the closer, then obviously the walks have to come down, which means fastball command has to get better," he said. "So, in turn, I’m hoping that I don’t have to go to my curveball so quickly in counts.”

Brett Cecil wins Blue Jays' closer job
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Blue Jays manager John Gibbons announced that his closer would be Brett Cecil

Cecil became the favorite for the job after Aaron Sanchez was moved to the starting rotation, following a season-ending injury to Marcus Stroman. 

The 28-year-old lefthander suffered from a shoulder injury earlier in the spring, but he has returned to the mound. 

Right now, it would be Cecil," Gibbons said, per MLB.com's Gregor Chisholm. "Cecil felt pretty good throwing yesterday; he'll throw again Tuesday. If everything moves in the right direction, then he'd be the guy."

Blue Jays' Gibbons names Brett Cecil closer
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Blue Jays manager John Gibbons named pitcher Brett Cecil as the team's closer Sunday, Sportsnet reports.

Cecil was the clear favorite to earn the role after Marcus Stroman suffered a season-ending ACL injury, as his primary competitor, Aaron Sanchez, is set to now open the season in the rotation. Cecil has yet to pitch in a major-league game this spring due to a shoulder issue but did throw 15 pitches in a minor-league game Saturday.
