FANTASY BASEBALL BREAKING CLOSEER NEWS: KEN GILES TO BE NAMED ASTROS CLOSER

According to MLB.com's Brian Taggert, Ken Giles will open the season as the Houston Astros closer despite a terrible spring that saw him post a horrific 7.56 ERA.  Luke Gregerson excelled as the Astros closer last season but he will now pitch the eighth inning at least for the start of the season. 

Analysis:  Anyone who owns stock in Giles MUST back him up with Gregerson given the awful spring.  While no one doubts the potency of Giles' fastball, his control is an issue and he has never closed for a team with expectations.  You also have to wonder how long his leash will be with the very solid Gregerson behind him.  If you find Gregerson on the wire in any of your leagues, make the add.
