When the Indians activated Kerry Wood on Friday, Aaron thought that the Indians should ease him back into things with some middle relief work or something, but that the team would probably try to rush him back and get some saves under his belt so he could be more easily flipped sometime this summer.
As always, you should listen to Aaron, because he was right. After one major league relief performance — during which he allowed two runs over two-thirds of an inning against the Tigers on Saturday — the Indians decided that, yep, he’s the closer again. He’ll resume responsibility for the ninth inning tomorrow.
It’s probably all academic anyway. It’s not like the Indians have a lot of late-inning leads to protect in the first place.
