Jeff Samardzija is in Carlos Marmol's corner to return as the team closer, even though manager Dale Sveum said he won't use Marmol while Kyuji Fujikawa is on the disabled list.
``We have a closer and that's Marmol. He's our guy,'' Samardzija said after Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Giants. ``He's getting it going again. He has nasty stuff. When he's in the zone, nobody hits him. With Fuji on the DL we have to turn to Marmol. He's been throwing a couple good innings here and there but he has the stuff to do it--the closing slider and the fastball. It's just he has to get on the same page with that.''
Sveum said he will keep Marmol in a middle relief role for now and choose a closer game by game, likely James Russell from the left side and Shawn Camp from the right side.
