Trivino seems about as locked in to the closer role as any outside the top 15 guys could be (and he may even be hovering that ranking w/ the cluster F ending games). 

 

Happily Team Trivino & Staumont up in here. And mostly thanks to here 🍻

Gravedigger is the add. He is new blood for closer. Montero is FINISHED!!!

it's not that clear cut, graveman is better but he's gonna also pitch some games in the 6th-8th inning in high leverage situations if the game calls for it. Check his usage.

Reyes didn't allow a baserunner in 2ip, there must be a mistake

That’s 3 IP in a row now. Good time to deal him

Or perhaps he’s finally settling in and feeling comfortable?

Trivino Has been available to pitch in 5 of the last 6 save situations he converted 4/4 out of those 5. He also pitched in the top of the ninth in tied or 1 run home games which is typical closer usage. Pretty clear to me he’s being treated as the closer

Possibly. Good point. He strikes me as a guy who has the fastball but will often miss, though he hasn’t been around long enough to have a consistent repertoire

What I like most about him is he does have a 4-pitch repertoire - he has lots of options as a closer.  He just seemed more relaxed today - not overthrowing as he has been mostly.

Are we still looking at J.B. Bukauskas as the future closer this year for the DBacks or is he a safe drop at this point?

Drop and monitor, imo.

I wouldn't roster Buk.  Rookies rarely are put in the closer's role.
