08:15 AM ET 03.14 | Jim Leyland, without the services of Jose Valverde, may have to be creative in the ninth inning this season. There are interesting options, including 22-year-old Bruce Rondon, whose fastball can hit 100 mph. ... Leyland, however, isn't sure he wants to immediately dump all of the pressures that come with being the closer on a team favored to win the division on Rondon right off the bat. So, for all the eyes that Rondon has opened, Leyland continues to think about the mixture of right-handers Joaquin Benoit, Al Alburquerque and Octavio Dotel, or lefty Phil Coke, in addition to Rondon. The skipper has even uttered the world "committee" in discussing Detroit's closer situation.
