On the hot seat: Armando Benitez 

Armando Benitez is a sensitive dude. Unfortunately, he has one of those jobs where that is a bad thing — closer. Benitez, who has the potential to be lights-out but is more known for the saves he hasn’t notched, will be on a short leash this year, especially after the Giants actively shopped the big Dominican, but held onto the right-hander. Injuries were somewhat to blame for his ineffectiveness the past two years, but that excuse will no longer fly.
