Opening Day 2012, White Sox Vs. Rangers: Robin Ventura Still Mum On Closer Situation

While the starting pitchers have been announced for this weekend's series against the Texas Rangers, Robin Ventura still won't say who he's going to call on to close for the White Sox this season.

"They'll know before the game," Ventura said with a smirk Thursday before the White Sox's workout. "It's not like I'm asking them to hit or catch. They're just going to pitch. I think they'll be fine."

There are some inexperienced candidates in the mix, so perhaps Ventura is trying to lessen the pressure on the younger guys. Pitching coach Don Cooper says the team is not planning on going with a closer-by-committee approach.
