After going a perfect 9-for-9 in save chances to start the season, New York Yankees closer David Robertson has now blown two saves in his last six appearances, with an ERA of 11.81 and a batting average against of .308. Could the recent struggles have manager Joe Girardi pondering a ninth inning change?

As Brendan Kuty of the Newark Star-Ledger reports, Dellin Betances and his "impressive 1.38 ERA and outstanding 15.4 strikeouts-per-nine-innings rate" could be about to get his share of save chances going forward. "Girardi told reporters Monday he'd consider giving Betances the ninth inning if regular closer David Robertson needed a day off."

While that by no means indicates that Robertson is "out" as the heir to Mariano Rivera in the Yankees bullpen, Wallace Matthews of ESPN New York thinks that a closer change is indeed inevitable.
