Nationals RP Drew Storen unhappy about move to setup role
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(7/29/15) Deposed Nationals closer Drew Storen is not taking his exile from that role lying down. But he's also not opening up to the media about his displeasure.
Storen is now the setup man in the wake of the trade that brought veteran Jonathan Papelbon to Washington. He is displased, especially considering he has nailed down 29 of 31 save opportunities and boasts a fine 1.71 ERA.
"Really, all I'm going to say is that obviously I'm aware of the move," Storen told MASN Sports. "I've talked to (Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo) about it. I've talked to my agent. We've had some ongoing discussions. I'm just going to leave it at that and no comment for now."
Storen has not yielded a run since June 24 and is on a scoreless run of 8 1/3 innings.
Nationals RP Drew Storen moving to set-up role following trade

|(7/28/15) With the Nationals reportedly set to acquire right-hander Jonathan Papelbon from the Phillies, incumbent closer Drew Storen will be relegated to set-up duties, according to CBS Sports Baseball Inside Jon Heyman.
Storen has had a terrific season so far as the Nationals' closer. He is 29-for-31 in save chances and has a 1.73 ERA this season.
Still, the acquisition will give the Nationals a formidable back-end of the bullpen with a pair of stud closers at manager Matt Williams' disposal.
RP Drew Storen snags 29th save for Nationals
|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(7/22/15) Drew Storen picked up his 29th save in style, striking out the side Wednesday to help the Nationals cap a come-from-behind win over the Mets.
Storen now has the second-most saves in baseball, one behind Pittsburgh's Mark Melancon. He has registered eight straight saves since suffering only his second blown save of the season on June 24, which was also the last time Storen allowed a run.
Drew Storen records 28th save for Nationals
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(7/18/15) Nationals closer Drew Storen pitched a scoreless ninth inning in Saturday's completion of a suspended game against the Dodgers.
Storen allowed one hit and walked a batter, but he was able to close out the game and earn his 28th save of the year.
Storen has recorded saves in his last seven games, all scoreless outings. It's the third time over that stretch that he's allowed two baserunners in his inning of work.
Drew Storen nabs one-out save for Nationals
|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(7/12/15) Drew Storen didn't have to do much work for his 27th save of the season, retiring one batter in the ninth to preserve the Nationals' 3-2 win Sunday.
Storen needed just four pitches to whiff the final batter of the contest and earn just his second one-out save of the year. The Nats' closer has now recorded six straight saves.
|2014 Summary: After seemingly disqualifying himself as a viable closer option with an uncharacteristically bad 2013, Drew Storen was one of the best relievers in baseball in 2014. That made him the choice over Tyler Clippard to replace a struggling Rafael Soriano in September. He never looked back, piling up 10 saves in the span of three weeks. In all, he had 11 to go along with a 1.12 ERA, second-best among relievers with at least 50 innings.|
Playing time status: Storen's move back to closer, a role he held prior to missing the first two-thirds of 2012 because of elbow surgery, was supposed to be temporary, but since he never relinquished the role, the Nationals must have liked what they saw. With Soriano hitting the open market this offseason, the smart money has Storen closing in 2015, four years after he first proved he could do it with 43 saves.
2015 Outlook: Drafted to close back in 2009, Storen's career has come full circle, but to say he's tailor made for the role would be overlooking one obvious drawback: In five big-league seasons, he has never averaged a strikeout per inning and had only 7.3 per nine in 2014. Closers who don't miss bats are inherently dangerous, but Storen is certainly good enough to keep the job. Another sub-2.00 ERA is unlikely, but he's worth targeting in the same range as Zach Britton, just after the top 12 relievers go off the board.
