The Closer Monkey's opening day:

March 22, 2022
Detroit Tigers — Given the signings of Javier Baez and Eduardo Rodriguez, and the likely debuts of top prospects of Spencer Torkelson and Riley Greene, Detroit intends to compete in 2022. This should mean more save chances for… who exactly? In October, manager AJ Hinch said Gregory Soto was his closer, and we have to take him at his word even if he was being a bit coy. Michael Fulmer and Jose Cisnero round out the hierarchy to start 2022.

Starting 2022 hierarchy: Soto | Fulmer | Cisnero.
Holds candidates: Fulmer, Cisnero, Andrew Chafin, Kyle Funkhouser, Joe Jimenez.

Most recent comment for Soto:

Named closer heading into 2022
October 6, 2021
Tigers manager A.J. Hinch said Soto (finger) will enter the 2022 season as Detroit's closer, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports.
ANALYSIS
Though Hinch declined to name Soto as the club's closer at any point in 2021, the 26-year-old lefty was clearly the club's top high-leverage reliever before being shut down for the final two weeks of the season with a fractured left ring finger. The first-time All-Star ultimately concluded the campaign with a 3.39 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and a 76:40 K:BB in 63.2 innings while collecting six wins, seven holds and going 18-for-19 in save chances. Now that he's been formally named as Detroit's full-time closer, Soto could be in store for a larger share of the late-inning opportunities in 2022 after seven other Tigers combined for 24 saves in 2021.
