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.

Manager not concerned about Jose Veras yet
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Cubs manager Rick Renteria has no concerns about reliever Jose Veras yet, according to the Chicago Tribune.

Veras had a disaster game Sunday, walking four and throwing a wild pitch in just 2/3 of an inning. Despite that, Renteria isn't worried. "(Veras) has only thrown a couple of times for us and in the spring (nine appearances)," Renteria said. "It's very hard for me to say I am concerned at this point." 

Renteria went on to add that it was just one appearance. Veras should have plenty of opportunities to straighten things out. He has a 16.20 ERA through two appearances thus far.
