Adam Rubin of ESPN NY reports that relief pitcher Vic Black has taken over closing duties from Jeff Walters with the 51s Vegas.

Walters has a 9.82 ERA and was 6-for-9 in save chances. Black, has a 0.79 ERA, with two saves, and 12 strikeouts in 11.1 innings of relief, but has also walked 10 batters this season.

Could be a move that gets Black ready for a promotion back to the Mets.
