FANTASY FOOTBALL HOT STOVE BREAKING NEWS: CUBS SIGN JOSE VERAS TO BE THEIR CLOSER ON ONE-YEAR DEAL

                                          

The Chicago Cubs signed free agent closer Jose Veras to a one-year deal worth $4 million.  Veras will man the ninth inning for the Cubs as he did for the Houston Astros last season before he was dealt to the Detroit Tigers to be a setup man.

Analysis:  Typical Cubs move here as they get Veras for one year and thus leave open the possibility they can deal him at the July deadline if they are out of contention as expected.  In the meantime Veras proved himself to be a quietly good closer for the Astros last season as he struck more than a batter per inning.  Nice value here.
