FANTASY BASEBALL CLOSING TIME: BRAD ZIEGLER NEXT MAN UP FOR BOSTON IN NINTH

Just a week after it was learned that Craig Kimbrel would miss 3-6 weeks after being forced to undergo knee surgery, the Boston Red Sox saw replacement stopper Koji Uehara go down Tuesday night with a strained pectoral muscle that is expected to land him on the disabled list Wednesday.  Uehara injured the pec during his appearance Tuesday night and his absence means recent acquistion Brad Ziegler will move into the ninth inning as the third man up.  Ziegler of course was picked up from the Arizona Diamondbacks two weeks ago after a successful stint as the closer out West and now he will be in charge for at least the next two weeks and likely more for the Sox.  Those who owned Ziegler and cut him loose when Uehara surprisingly took over for Kimbrel now are regretting that decision and thus any league where the sinkerballer is available, an "add" should be made right away.
