"I imagine there will be times during the season where Drew will be in eight out of 13 games a la [Tyler] Clippard," Williams said. "It's kind of the way we played early on. We had a lot of leads. We had an opportunity for Clipp to get in the eighth inning a lot early on. It's ebb and flow into the season. There is nothing wrong [with Storen]. There is no reason that he has been in three out of the last 13 games. It's a function of where we are at and how the games have gone. He is good with it. He is throwing a lot."
Storen is off to a good start, allowing two runs in 11 1/3 innings.
