Rays Expected To Use Several Closers

Feb 06, 2011 5:22 PM EST

The Rays are expected to use a number of pitchers to close games this season.

"I have to prepare myself mentally for that because it's really different," manager Joe Maddon said.

"To have the one guy at the end of the game allows you to do certain things to get to the ninth innings whereas when you don't, there's different things you have to consider all the time. So it's quite a mental exercise."
