Pirates general manager Neil Huntington confirmed Thursday that Mark Melancon will remain the team's closer.
The acquisition of Joakim Soria on Thursday strengthened an already deep and talented setup corps for the Bucs, but it won't force the All-Star right-hander from his ninth-inning gig. Melancon boasts a stellar 1.32 ERA, 0.94 WHIP and league leading 32 saves on the year. Jul 30 - 8:33 PM
