"Right now, Ax is struggling a little bit, but he's going to come back being John Axford. He's going to come back and take over that spot. Obviously for now, hopefully the four of us can kind of pick him up while he's getting his things back in order. We're just going to try to fill in until he's back."
--Indians righty Bryan Shaw, one of four relievers handling the closing duties while Axford works through command issues
