(4/21): Frieri has been one of the most prolific strikeout artists among relievers the last couple of seasons, but he's been unable to ascend to the high-end ranks of closers due to a relatively high walk and home run rate. He's gotten off to a rocky start in the season's first month with three home runs allowed to go along with a blown save over his first eight 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.
