Arizona Diamondbacks name Brad Boxberger, not Archie Bradley, as closer for 2018
The Arizona Diamondbacks have named Brad Boxberger as their closer for the 2018 season, manager Torey Lovullo announced on Tuesday.
Lovullo also said that the team is keeping reliever Archie Bradley in the same role as last year.
Yoshihisa Hirano was also a candidate for the job.
The three relievers in the hunt each threw a hitless, scoreless inning and combined for four strikeouts against the Indians in Monday's game at Chase Field. Lovullo said the three “looked very impressive.”
