MESA, Ariz. -- Bob Howry is not ready to anoint himself as the Cubs closer. Not yet.

"You do need defined roles," Howry said Tuesday. "But on Feb. 19, you need to be getting ready for the season. It doesn't matter [who the closer is] until March 31. You need to know on [Opening Day] what your role is going to be."

Howry, Kerry Wood and Carlos Marmol are competing for the job this spring, although fans will not see them coming into Cactus League games only in save situations. Most teams pull their regular hitters after a few innings, so if the Cubs want to test the trio, they could enter in the fourth.
