Can Brett Cecil Close?

Following another bullpen meltdown for the Cardinals on Tuesday night, and the shaky 9th last night. I began to wonder if Brett Cecil would be a good option to close given his recent success. Seung-hwan Oh (5.73 ERA, .304 average against) and Trevor Rosenthal (7.15 ERA, .302 average against) have both struggled significantly in June. Cecil on the other hand (2.84 ERA, .163 average against) has found his footing for the first time in 2017. To get a true feel for Cecil’s ability to close, I dove into the underlying statics.
