FANTASY BASEBALL HOT STOVE BREAKING NEWS: ORIOLES SIGN CLOSER GRANT BALFOUR FOR TWO YEARS

                                       

The Baltimore Orioles finally got their closer on Tuesday as they signed free agent Grant Balfour to a two-year deal.  Terms of the agreement were not revealed but Balfour slips right into the team's ninth inning in place of the traded Jim Johnson.

Analysis:  Basically Johnson and Balfour trade positions this season.  Balfour has turned himself into a very solid top ten fantasy baseball closer the last two seasons after his early MLB seasons were marred by inconsistency.  Those earlier struggles have helped keep the draft price down on Balfour so you may be able to snag him at a decent figure for this season.
