FANTASY BASEBALL BREAKING NEWS: PADRES SIGN RP ERIC O'FLAHERTY TO TWO-YEAR DEAL WORTH $7 MILLION

                                                            

The San Diego Padres continued making their bullpen into one of baseball's best on Wednesday after signing RP Eric O'Flaherty to a two-year deal worth $7 million.  O'Flaherty is coming back from Tommy John surgery after being almost unhittable for two years with the Atlanta Braves and doesn't figure to return until the middle of the summer.  However the extra year could have O'Flaherty as a potential future closer.  He joins Joaquin Benoit in front of closer Huston Street to serve as a terrific back end of the bullpen.

Analysis:  No fantasy baseball movement here but a nice deal nonetheless for O'Flaherty.  It really speaks to the importance of top relievers who can still get a haul even when coming back from surgery.  Those in holds leagues could look here later on during the season.
