Joaquín Benoit has done great taking over the closer role from Jose Valverde, but another arm in the bullpen is always welcome.

Plus, he can be the closer if Benoit falters down the stretch, as Veras is 19/22 in save situations this season for a pitiful Astros team.

I'm not sure if they are planning on using Veras in the 8th inning set up role, or are planning on moving Benoit back to that role.

I think I'd keep Joaquín Benoit in the closer's role the way he has pitched since he took it over.
