DL bound. Zero earned runs for Bedrosian in his last six appearances to go along with 8 strikeouts and 2 walks. Parker still seems to be struggling. There seems to be some thought that Justin Anderson may have a shot at the role.

I think Bedrosian is the favourite in the short term. If Middleton misses significant time and Parker gets the feel back for his splitter, Scoscia may be inclined to put his closer from last year back into the role.

The early 2018 stats will go away when Colin gets back to his desktop computer, but it's interesting to look at them in the meantime.

Middleton's G/L/F after four games was very impressive. In the four since then, seemingly, he has had great BABIP luck.

Baseball Forecaster had an indicator:  "He's not closing yet, but keep a star by his name."

Three in a row.  He's the closer.

Two days in a row.  I'd venture to say we all missed this.  He went for $1 in my league and not to the team with Parker or Bedroisian.  He's going to need to trade a closer because he has Diaz and Greene also.

Los Angeles Angels — Another save for Keynan Middleton, this one of the five-out variety. Middleton entered up four and got two more runs in the top of the ninth, but still managed to make things exciting with a walk, two singles, and a hit batsman. After 37 pitches, we don’t expect him to get a save chance tomorrow, but he’s consolidating his position at the top of the Angels committee.

Hierarchy remains: *Middleton | Bedrosian | Parker.
* = closer-by-committee

Los Angeles Angels – With the major caveat that this is Mike Scioscia, recent usage suggests something we’ve alluded to in our last two Angels updates: that Keynan Middleton looks like the guy to own in the Angels bullpen right now. The latest example comes from last night’s game, which played out like this: The Angels were up four runs in the 7th, and they went to Jim Johnson. He gave up a run and Blake Parker started getting loose for the 8th. The Angels tacked on three runs in the top half, turning it into a 6-run game and making it a lower-leverage spot for Parker (who would probably benefit from a few more such outings). Parker pitched a clean 8th and then gave way to Cam Bedrosian in the 9th with the lead still at 6; Bedrosian proceeded to give up a run before closing things out. Inconspicuous in his absence was Middleton, who was never asked to get loose once the game got out of hand. As such, we’re cautiously moving him to the top of the hierarchy.

Updated hierarchy: *Middleton | Bedrosian | Parker.
* = closer-by-committee
