Worrell chosen Dodgers closer

April 08, 1995|By Los Angeles Times

VERO BEACH,. FLA. — VERO BEACH, Fla. -- Todd Worrell will be the Los Angeles Dodgers' closer this year, manager Tom Lasorda said yesterday.

Worrell, 35, who signed a three-year, $9.3 million contract in December 1992, was injured for most of 1993 and saved only five games. Last year, he was physically sound but saved only 11 games and blew a league-leading eight games.

"This guy can be the real key to the success of our ballclub. This guy saved a lot of ballgames in his career," Lasorda said.
