FANTASY BASEBALL CLOSING TIME: ALL SEEM'S QUIET.....FOR NOW
Its been an unusually quiet week in the realms of closers in fantasy baseball but there are still some tidbits and news to get to. Lets take a quick look around the league at the ninth inning issues.
-Dodgers closer Jonathan Broxton continues to pitch in rehab games as he gets closer to returning to the team. Right now its a big mess as far as who is currently the team's closer right now. In other words Broxton figures to get the job back right away upon activation. As bad as he struggled before going on the DL, Broxton has actually been better than almost everyone else the team has tried in his place. If somehow Broxton is sitting on your league's free agent wire, pick him up.
-Joakim Soria has settled in nicely now that he is back in his ninth inning role. He has been perfect since his exile a few weeks back and so Aaron Crow we hardly knew ya.
-It sure does look like Frank Francisco is back for better or worse as the Blue Jays' closer. Jon Rauch had a rough week while Francisco converted both of his ninth inning save chances. Here we go again with Frankie. It wont be a smooth ride as we have seen this season.
-Strange situation in Atlanta as Jonny Venters looked to be on the verge of getting the closer's job from the struggling Craig Kimbrel until he threw in a clunker in a setup appearance a few days ago. The next save chance will be telling here but right now this is looking like an annoying time share situation.
-Trade season is just around the corner and that means more ninth inning chaos as closers get traded to other teams to close for them or become setup men. That means the job they leave goes to a newbie and hence another chance to add saves reveals itself. With that said, some guys who could be on the move are Matt Capps, JJ Putz, Francisco Rodriguez. Kevin Gregg, and of course Heath Bell. Keep an eye on all of these situations and get ready to add their replacements.
That's all for now. As always check back often for the latest closer news as it occurs.
