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.
Astros bullpen was one of the worst (another blown game vs Mariners) and IMO just got worse.
