AL closers: Will Joe Nathan regain old job? 

July, 12, 2011
With the National League closer situations taken care of earlier, let's transition to the other league, where at this point only one of the top seven relief pitchers on the Player Rater reside. And I'm worried about that guy.

Boston Red Sox: Jonathan Papelbon is still a top-10 closer, and Daniel Bard is still his setup man. Papelbon saves 36 games, Bard and Bobby Jenks each save two.
