(4/15): Frieri enters 2014 with more job security than last season, largely on the strength of his strong finish over the last two months, as he posted a 32:4 K:BB ratio while converting 12-of-12 save opportunities. His walk rate (3.93 BB/9 IP in 2013) remains something to watch, but Frieri compensates for that deficiency by being one of the most prolific strikeout artists among relievers. He's gotten off to a rocky start with three home runs allowed to go along with a blown save over his first six appearances, but there's been no indication from manager Mike Scioscia that he's in any serious danger of losing his job. Smith looks to be the top alternative if the Angels should decide to go in another direction at closer at some point.
