There could be a change coming in the Reds' closer role, with manager Dusty Baker hinting late Saturday afternoon that he might turn from Sean Marshall to Aroldis Chapman. There was bumpy ending to Cincinnati's 6-5 victory over the Yankees. For the second time in 10 days, Marshall could not complete a save and needed to be bailed out. "Like I've said before, you've got to graduate to that position," Baker said of Chapman. "Who knows? Maybe graduation time is here. We've got to talk about it. As a matter of fact, I've already talked to him about it. We'll see. Marshall is a team man. It's not what he signed up for. He was forced into it. He signed up to be our setup man in the eighth."
