Jenks remains the White Sox closer

Jenks remains the White Sox closer

CHICAGO -- White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen reiterated Monday how late-inning stumbles in Minneapolis and Seattle on the team's recent 4-6 road trip didn't cost Bobby Jenks his closing job.

"I never took the job away from Jenks. I never did," Guillen said. "I just said I want Jenks to throw the ball better and we will put him in a position to get back on track to see what he is. I keep saying this.

"We're a good ballclub. We're a better ballclub if Bobby is our closer because that makes a lot of things easier for us. He threw the ball better, yes he did. The sooner I see Bobby back on track, he will be back to what he does. I won't hesitate. I will do it right away if we like the way he throws the ball. He will be back to his job."
