This was in the Tribune today...

Guillen said there are no plans to replace rookie Bobby Jenks as the primary closer. Neal Cotts will be used more in late-inning situations over fellow left-hander Damaso Marte, said Guillen, who used Cotts to help Marte get out of a jam in the ninth inning of Thursday's game.

I know all about Hermanson getting extra rest because of his back, but since when is Jenks the primary closer? Is Dustin on the official DL or something?

I think you said it...Hermenson is getting extra rest becuase of his back. I recall Dustin saying he does not wish this pain on anybody and has had to make adjustments becuase of it....He was warming up last night so I don't think he's on the DL.

Hermanson got the win in the Cleveland series. He really came up big. I think Ozzie knows what he's doing.
