Storen aiming for Reds' closer role, Price mulling bullpen

GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) Drew Storen is comfortable with his catcher, and that's important for a former closer who is trying to earn the role with the Cincinnati Reds.

Storen attended high school in Indiana with Reds catcher Tucker Barnhart, who lobbied for him to join Cincinnati in the offseason. Storen agreed to a one-year, $3 million deal and will be in competition for the closer spot.

After a tough season last year, the 29-year-old reliever hopes that having some familiarity will help him get back into a good frame of mind. The right-hander went 4-3 with a 5.23 ERA in 57 appearances last season for Toronto and Seattle, which primarily used him in roles other than his accustomed spot as a closer.
