And, by the way, Francisco is back as closer

The news that Vicente Padilla has been designated for assignment almost completely glossed over the fact that manager Ron Washington has decided to put Frank Francisco back in the closer's role. That decision has nothing to do with Wilson's hiccups the past three times out, said Washington, but more to do with Francisco back fully healthy and Wilson having more value in the seventh and eighth innings because he can log multiple innings.
