Baldelli uncommitted to closer, with many options for 9th

FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) The normally gregarious Rocco Baldelli has been quite tight-lipped about his plans for the closer role, entering his first season as Minnesota's manager.

That's the biggest unanswered question for the Twins in spring training. The good news for them, and their rookie skipper, is that there is no shortage of options.

Gone is three-time All-Star Fernando Rodney, who was traded to Oakland last August for minor league pitcher Dakota Chalmers. Rodney, who will turn 42 next month, had 25 saves for the Twins last season and has 325 for his career to rank 18th in major league history.
