FANTASY BASEBALL BREAKING CLOSER NEWS: JASON GRILLI STILL AIMING TO CLOSE IN 2016

Veteran reliever Jason Grilli is expecting to be the Atlanta Braves closer for the start of the 2016 season as he continues to rehab from last year's Achilles injury.  Manager Freddie Gonzalez has not spoken yet about his plans for the ninth inning this season but Grilli is expected to be ready to go for Opening Day.

Analysis:  Grilli was actually very good before going down last season in registering a 2.94 ERA and continuing to show strikeout stuff despite his advancing age.  Still the Braves might want to look again at Arodys Vizcaino who pitched well himself as the team's closer down the stretch of 2015 and could very well represent the future there.  This could go either way so it bears watching.
