36-year old lefty reliever Scott Downs has bumped 24-year old Jordan Walden from his closer’s job. Downs has pitched in 10 games (0 starts) for the Angels so far this year and he is 0-0 with 2 saves, a 0.00 ERA and a 0.86 WHIP. He has only given up 6 hits and 2 walks in his first 9 1/3 innings this year as he has been electric this year. He might keep the closer’s job for a while. Jordan Walden saved 32 games last year, but he appears lost so far in 2012. Walden has pitched in 6 games (0 starts) for the Angels so far this year and he is 0-1 with 1 save, a 8.31 ERA and a 2.08 WHIP. He will have to earn the closer’s job back by pitching well in middle relief.
