FANTASY BASEBALL CLOSER NEWS: FERNANDO RODNEY THE "FAVORITE" TO BEGIN SEASON AS SAN DIEGO CLOSER

According to a team source connected to the San Diego Padres front office, the team is planning on having veteran Fernando Rodney open the season as the team's closer and not young upstart Kevin Quackenbush.  Citing Rodney's experience as the reason for him getting the nod, the source said that Quackenbush could be "groomed" to take over later in the season. 

Analysis:  Rodney is currently being held out of workouts due to a hamstring issue but it looks like he unbelievably will be a closer again.  There may not be a worse closer to start the season and Quackenbush should be drafted as a hedge that likely will be in the ninth inning at some point.
