Santos, who has yet to give up a run in the regular season (9 2/3 innings) and spring training (same number: 9 2/3 innings) received praise from manager Ozzie Guillen before Friday’s game, hinting that he might start handing the ball to the young pitcher in save situations.”
Now I have confidence in Santos,” Guillen said. “I don’t mind closing a game with Santos if three righties are at the plate. I don’t mind at all. You talk about (Miguel) Cabrera, Magglio (Ordonez) and (Austin) Jackson, you might see Santos in the ninth. That’s the way we’re going to go to right now when we start to set everything ready to go.”
