Rafael Soriano to remain Nationals' closer
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

It was another rough outing for Nationals closer Rafael Soriano during Sunday's game against the Pirates. The right-handed reliever suffered his fifth blown save after allowing three runs on two hits and one walk in one-third of an inning.

Soriano has had his struggles since the All-Star break, going 1-1 with three blown saves and a 7.71 ERA in 13 outings. 

Nationals manager Matt Williams said he could "potentially" reshuffle the bullpen in order for Soriano to pitch less in high-leverage situations to allow him time to iron out his problems. However, Williams reiterated Soriano is the team's closer, per The Washington Post.

"He’s been our closer all year and I don’t see that changing as of right now," Soriano said. "He’s been up a lot recently, pitching a lot of games and hopefully the games don’t present themselves like that and we can give him some rest and give him a chance to cool down a little bit and kick back. … It’s just been a little off, that’s all."
