Rangers manager Ron Washington has officially named C.J. Wilson the team's closer for the season. Washington said Eddie Guardado, Kaz Fukumori and Joaquin Benoit would also get save opportunities. The news was welcomed by Wilson. "It's kind of cool," he said. "It's what I've been working for. It's not necessarily a surprise or anything on my end. I'm just happy that we're all on the same page now and it's out in the open. Now we can move on and try to win."
