Merkin @ CWS:

Sergio Santos has become the popular choice to become the White Sox closer, pitching scoreless baseball since the start of Spring Training. Even with his 96 mph fastball, slider and changeup developing quickly, that job never would have been a thought in 2010 when Santos was making the big league transformation from infielder to pitcher.

Last-season restrictions such as keeping Santos to one inning per outing, which happened every appearance but two through June, and restricting his back-to-back work have been removed. The White Sox view him as a prime reliever, not a talented project.

“Just be prepared for anything, that was the message they got to us,” Santos said. “[Matt] Thornton was our closer, but be prepared for the seventh or eighth, back-to-back, two innings.
