...but Logan Kensing certainly isn't.
Pete McElroy of MASN dot com has Manny Acta's pregame comments on Jesus Colome, where Manny indicates Jesus won't be stepping into the closer role, at least not right away.
He's going to be part of our bullpen and he's going to be pitching in the middle of games and we'll see if he can throw the ball the way he threw for us in Spring Training and they way he was throwing in Triple-A. He's a guy, over the last two seasons here, has done a good job for us, always reliable, resilient and still has a good arm and we like what we saw in Spring Training where he showed up with better command of his pitches and threw well for us.

Meanwhile, the news on Jesus Flores' 15-day trip to the DL isn't good, but the move is retroactive to May 10th; so he's almost 1/3 of the way done. Over at Chatter, Ben Goessling reports "Manny Acta said Flores shouldn't be out any longer than his 15 days." It's a good thing this isn't 2008, or you could kiss Jesus goodbye until at least July with talk like that.
