Indians manager Terry Francona said Saturday that the team's eventual goal is to have John Axford return to the closer's role.
Francona did say that he likes how Cody Allen and Bryan Shaw are performing in the ninth inning and that a change isn't imminent. While Axford has pitched better in recent weeks, he still issues far too many walks to be trusted with the game on the line. Jun 7 - 2:34 PM
