Tolleson needed 38 pitches to get through his two save chances against Boston, which is why he was unavailable Friday.

Rangers pitcher Shawn Tolleson trying to earn closer role


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/20/2015) Rangers pitcher Shawn Tolleson knows the roles in Texas' bullpen are currently up for grabs. Because of that, Tolleson is trying to take the opportunity to earn the closer's role, something he has done for much of his professional career, according to MLB.com.

Tolleson is 1-0 with a 3.63 ERA in 17 1/3 innings of work this season.

"If we settle into roles and that's the way it falls as far as where I'm best suited, I'm all for it," Tolleson said. "I will take the reins and embrace it. Right now, I am focused on putting up zeros no matter what the game situation is."


Rangers manager Jeff Banister: no roles set in bullpen


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/17/2015) Rangers manager Jeff Banister said after Sunday's game that all roles in his bullpen are up for grabs, according to the Dallas Morning News.

Closer Neftali Feliz blew his third save of the season on Saturday against the Indians when he surrendered a three-run homer in the ninth. Tanner Scheppers and Shawn Tolleson both threw at the back end of the bullpen on Sunday, allowing one hit over three scoreless innings. 

"Brought all of our guys in, told each one of them, individually, collectively, that right now as we sit, nobody has a specific role, that we are going to find what is the best match for this bullpen, for this ballclub," Banister said to MLB.com. "We're going to continue to look at the hitters who are coming up each inning and what's the best fit or the best matchup with the best arm that we have out there at any given time."

Banister noted Feliz will fight to fight for his role.

"I didn't say that Feliz was not our closer," Banister said. "Every one of them are out there to pitch when we pick up the phone and call on them to be ready. … That was where we felt was the best place for Tolly to pitch."

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Banister doesn't want to throw any of his relievers on four straight days, but both Feliz and Tolleson did not rule out being available to pitch.

"Been a long time since I've done that," Feliz said. "But it felt good."

Feliz has thrown 3 2/3 innings this season with a 4.91 ERA and four strikeouts.
