Santiago Casilla Is The Giants New Closer

San Francisco Giants reliever Santiago Casilla will serve as the team’s closer in the absence of Brian Wilson, according to MLB.com.

Casilla earned his first save of the year last night in home a Giants 4-2 victory Tuesday over Philadelphia, coaxing two groundouts to open the ninth inning and then a single and a low liner to the shortstop. Following the game, manager Bruce Bochy indicated that the hurler would be “first in line” for save opportunities.

"He had great stuff," manager Bruce Bochy said of Casilla. "He pounded the strike zone. That's what you want to see from the closer."

It was initially believed that long-time set up man, Sergio Romo, would be promoted to the closer position with Wilson out for the year.
