Cubs would like to see Jose Veras regain closer's role
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Cubs manager Rick Renteria said Sunday he would like to see Jose Veras return to the closer's role at some point, per MLB.com.

"Veras was brought in to be our closer," Renteria said. "We want to make sure he's given an opportunity. He's working very hard on certain things but he still has to get out there on the hill in game situations to get comfortable.

"We certainly want to make sure we give Jose a chance to get back into the role and try to find situations we can allow him to work. He needs to work. We're going to do our very best that he gets into a comfort level. We need all those guys. In baseball, you don't eliminate guys, you need them all."

Jose Veras loses closer job with Cubs
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

One blown save and several poor outings have already cost Jose Veras the job as closer for the Cubs. Rick Renteria made that move just hours after saying Veras is "still our guy."

Veras not only blew a save opportunity Friday night by giving up two runs against Pittsburgh, but he has walked seven and yielded five runs in 3 2/3 innings this season.

It remains to be seen if Renteria declares a bullpen-by-committee approach for now or names a replacement to Veras. Pedro Strop is a leading candidate, but he is also scuffling with his control. He has walked four in the last 1 1/3 innings.

Jose Veras: 'I can't get three out right now'
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Embattled Cubs closer Jose Veras spoke frankly Saturday about his struggles, which included a blown save in his first opportunity of the season Friday night against St. Louis.

"For some reason I can't get three out right now," he told ESPN.

Veras has provided plenty of evidence of that. He has walked seven and give up five earned runs in 3 2/3 innings to start the year. Despite his miserable performance, he has received a vote of confidence from Rick Renteria.

Jose Veras coughs up late-inning lead
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Cubs pitcher Jose Veras coughed up a two-run lead in the ninth inning of Friday's win over the Cardinals, suffering his first blown save of the season.

Veras surrendered a run on a passed ball and on a sacrifice fly in the ninth inning, sending the game to extras. He allowed two runs on one hit and one walk in one inning pitched. After the game, manager Rick Renteria told reporters that Veras will remain as the team's closer moving forward.

"He's still our guy," Renteria said, per Comcast SportsNet Chicago.

Jose Veras pitches clean inning in nonsave situation
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Cubs pitcher Jose Veras pitched a perfect ninth inning in a nonsave situation Tuesday, striking out one in his team's 7-6 loss to the Pirates.

Veras couldn't find the strike zone over the first week of the season, walking six batters in 1 2/3 innings. However, he was able to pitch a clean inning Tuesday after earning a vote of confidence from his manager. Veras owns a 10.13 ERA and 3:6 K:BB ratio and has yet to pick up a save.
