FANTASY BASEBALL BREAKING CLOSER NEWS: TOM WILHELMSEN NOW THE CLOSER FOR MARINERS

Seattle Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon is back at it again in tinkering with the ninth inning for the team, saying on Wednesday that lefty Tom Wilhelmsen is now the closer instead of the fading Carson Smith.  Wilhelmsen has successfully nailed down his two recent save chances and McClendon said he is going with the hot hand.  The Mariners just recently also cut loose veteran closer Fernando Rodney earlier this past week. 

Analysis:  Pick up Wilhelmsen where available as he is having a very good season and has had some success in the past in the ninth inning.  Carson Smith has a good arm and himself was very solid before his recent struggles and he is still the guy like long-term.  However Wilhelmsen looks like the choice at least until he himself hits a rough stretch.
