Casey Janssen is Blue Jays' new closer
The Blue Jays have announced that Casey Janssen will serve as closer until Sergio Santos returns from injury.
In Toronto, Francisco Cordero and his 9.53 ERA are out as interim closer, and right-hander Casey Janssen is in, tweets Gregor Chisolm of MLB.com. It is, however, perhaps a sign of the Jays' desperation that their new closer has a 5.53 ERA for 2012.
Presumably, though, Janssen is merely a placeholder until Sergio Santos returns from his shoulder injury. On that front, Santos was able to throw from a mound on Tuesday, but he's still at least two weeks away from being activated.
To date, Blue Jay relievers have blown seven of 11 save opportunities and recorded six losses.
