FANTASY BASEBALL CLOSING TIME: JEREMY JEFFRESS BATTLING HAMSTRING SORENESS, LEG UP FOR WILL SMITH

When there is a battle to man the closer position in spring training, any one bad outing or one injury could help decide things in favor of the other guy.  While it is still very early in spring training, it was learned on Saturday that Milwaukee Brewers reliever Jeremy Jeffress was battling a sore hamstring which will get him shut down from throwing bullpen sessions until it clears up.  The righty was in the beginning stages of a closer battle for the team along with lefty Will Smith but the injury to Jeffress could already be tilting things in his counterpart's favor.  We talked up Smith in our annual Fantasy Sports Boss Fantasy Baseball Draft Guide and there certainly were a ton of positive as he was coming off a dominant 2015 campaign where he pitched to a 2.70 ERA and struck out a crazy 92 batters while only throwing 63.1 innings.  While Jeffress' injury is not believed to be serious, you have to think that Smith already had a leg up on things.
