Maddon backed Robles as his closer just Sunday but quickly changed his tune, and indeed passed Robles over for a save chance Tuesday night. Ty Buttrey got the ball and converted a four-out save against Seattle. Robles still has not pitched since Aug. 1, when he allowed three runs on four hits -- including two home runs -- to blow the save against the Angels. Robles has given up nine earned runs total in 3.2 innings this season.
