Can Santos save the White Sox?

Posted on: April 25, 2011 10:29 pm
 
NEW YORK -- For now, it seems Sergio Santos is the White Sox closer.

Hey, he hasn't failed yet.

Santos recorded a four-out save in Chicago's 2-0 Monday night win over the Yankees, giving the White Sox just their second save of the season, their first since April 9. The White Sox have struggled so much that Monday's save opportunity was their first since April 13, when opening day closer Matt Thornton was charged with his fourth blown save in as many chances.

Sale also had a blown save early in the season, and while he has the only other Sox save this year, he also has a 5.79 ERA in nine appearances.

Guillen had Sale pitch to the first two batters in the eighth inning Monday, then went to the right-handed Santos with pinch hitter Andruw Jones at the plate. Eric Chavez, who hit for Jones, single, but Santos got Derek Jeter to end the eighth. Santos gave up a leadoff single to Curtis Granderson in the ninth, then got Mark Teixeira to hit into a double play and struck out Alex Rodriguez to end the game.

And, it appears, to earn himself a chance to keep the closing job.

"If the opportunity comes up again, we'll see how he handles it," Guillen said.

If Santos can be consistent and be a guy they can count on at the end of the game, it will make the whole bullpen better. There is some definite talent in the back end. After a terrible start, they have had almost no opportunities in high leverage situations. When they start hitting, the current pace of futility is unsustainable, I think they can start ripping off some wins, especially if they have the confidence that a lead will hold.
