The New York Yankees aren't sure if RP David Robertson will take over the closer role next season with RP Mariano Rivera retired. "I'm not sure if Robertson is capable yet. He's never done that before," general manager Brian Cashman said. "I think he's earned the right to take a shot at it, and he very well may be the guy. But we're not anointing him the guy. We'll wait to see how our winter plays out and how Spring Training works out. Then Joe (Girardi) and Larry (Rothschild) will determine at some point at the end of Spring Training who our closer is."

Although New York Yankees RP David Robertson would seem to be the heir apparent to CL Mariano Rivera, general manager Brian Cashman is not anointing him the closer just yet. "We haven't anointed anybody the closer, so I don't know," Cashman said. "I know Robertson wants it. But we'll see how the winter shakes out and how the competition in spring training takes place." The Yankees have been in contact with free-agent closers like Grant Balfour (Athletics)
