Ronald Belisario came into last night’s White Sox Blue Jays game in the ninth inning to lock down a 5-2 lead. When he left it was 5-3, with Belisario having given up a homer and having put two more runners on, one of whom came around to score. Robin Ventura had to call on two more relievers to wiggle out of the jam and escape the game with a 5-4 win.
Afterward Ventura announced that Belisario — who now has a 5.54 ERA and has allowed 84 hits in 74.1 innings — has been removed from his role as the team’s closer. Jake Petricka, one of the two who came in to bail out Belisario, could be his replacement. Or possibly Javy Guerra and Zach Putnam. We just know it ain’t Bellisario anymore.
