The Phillies acquired David Robertson in a deadline trade yesterday that sent pitching prospect Ben Brown to the Cubs.
But manager Rob Thomson said he plans to stick with Seranthony Domínguez and lefty Brad Hand for the majority of save opportunities, even though Robertson had been closing effectively in Chicago.
“I think we’ll continue to do that, yeah,” Thomson said. “It all depends on how the game goes. But D-Rob’s another option for us because he’s done it in the past for a long time and he’s done it down the stretch, done it in the playoffs. He’s done it in the World Series. He’s a guy that I really trust.”
