Milwaukee Closer Situation

Eric Gagne has already blown five saves (granted, he's also tied for the MLB lead with 13 chances).  You have to wonder if the Brewers will contemplate a switch for the next save opportunity.

Looking at contracts, David Riske should be next in line.  But he's been just as bad as Gagne, posting a 5.51 ERA while allowing tons of baserunners.  Two veterans remain with acceptable ERAs - Salomon Torres at 2.95 and Guillermo Mota at 2.40.

Torres seems much more likely to become the fill-in closer.  He holds a big WHIP advantage, 1.36 to Mota's 1.53 (not that 1.36 is good).  But Mota's had terrible control this year and Torres has recent closing experience.  Go snag Torres now.
