Blue Jays' Gibbons yet to settle on closer, could use committee
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said Tuesday that while Brett Cecil has the ability to close, he might not serve as the team's closer, the National Post reports.

"He could do it. He might not. It might be somebody else," Gibbons said.

The manager also raised the possibility of using multiple closers.

"It could be one of those deals where one night he might be closing, the other night he might have to come in at the end of the seventh or eighth inning," Gibbons said.

Despite the face that Gibbons hasn't deemed Cecil his closer, he did praise his pitching ability Tuesday.

"He’s got some overpowering stuff," Gibbons said. "He’s a lefty and I don’t think there’s a better curveball out there. He can throw it for strikes, he can bring it down low in the zone and bounce it for a strikeout. That’s kind of his go-to pitch. He doesn’t rattle. He’s pretty confident and calm when he’s out there."

Cecil went 2-3 with a 2.70 ERA, 76:27 K:BB ratio and five saves in 53 1/3 innings in 2014. He owns a 11.1 career K/9 rate in relief.

Blue Jays' Brett Cecil believes he can close
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Blue Jays pitcher Brett Cecil believes he can be the team's closer, according to MLB.com.

"Absolutely, I want it," Cecil said. "I don't think I necessarily have to prove anything. I can't go out there and tank Spring Training, but I think they know I can do it." Cecil did manage to notch five saves last season. He posted a 2.70 ERA over 53 1/3 innings with the club.

Cecil is expected to compete for the closer role with Aaron Sanchez during camp. Sanchez has started in the past, but it's unclear if the team will stretch him out this spring.

Blue Jays' Brett Cecil behind Aaron Sanchez in closer battle?
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said Thursday that pitcher Brett Cecil would likely be the closer if the season started today, unless Aaron Sanchez is in the bullpen as well, Sportsnet reports.

Cecil picked up five saves in 2014 while posting a 2.70 ERA and 76:27 K:BB ratio in 53 1/3 innings. He's been excellent since being transitioned to the bullpen full-time in 2013. Sanchez, the team's No. 2 prospect according to Baseball America, would like to start but may be squeezed out of the rotation during the spring.

GM Alex Anthopoulos said in November that the team wanted Sanchez to remain stretched out during the spring despite J.A. Happ being penciled into the final spot in the rotation. However, Gibbons indicated earlier this week that Sanchez could factor into the closer mix if he's placed in the bullpen.
