FANTASY BASEBALL CLOSER NEWS: WILL SMITH UP TO 7 SCORELESS INNINGS

While Milwaukee Brewers manager Craig Counsell refuses to name a set closer to begin the 2016 season, the evidence is becoming compelling that lefty Will Smith is the best option for the ninth inning.  Smith threw another scoreless inning on Monday which brings his spring total of shutout frames to seven with  five strikeouts.  Meanwhile Smith's prime completion in righty Jeremy Jeffress has tossed just one inning this spring as he battles back from a hamstring strain.  Whether Counsell says so publicly or not, Smith is the better bet right now to get the first save chance for the team but the manger is leaving himself open to making a change is his lefty struggles with the chance.  Yes it seems like a chaotic situation but Smith will likely end up being the guy officially or not officially real soon.
