FANTASY BASEBALL HOT STOVE BREAKING NEWS: INDIANS SIGN JOHN AXFORD TO BE THEIR CLOSER

                                               John Axford

The Cleveland Indians got their closer late Sunday as they signed free agent John Axford of which terms were not disclosed.  Axford comes off a rocky 2013 season when he quickly lost his closer role with the Milwaukee Brewers but who than pitched somewhat all right with the St. Louis Cardinals.

Analysis:  They cut Chris Perez who you could say was just as poor as Axford was last season so this doesn't make a ton of sense with Grant Balfour, Joaquin Benoit, and Fernando Rodney still on the market.  Axford's stuff still generates a bunch of whiffs though so maybe under the right tutelage he could go back to the top end closer he was a few years ago.  For now though Axford is now one of the lowest rated closers in fantasy baseball.
