2017 FANTASY BASEBALL CLOSING TIME: END IS HERE FOR NEFTALI FELIZ IN MILWAUKEE AS CLOSER?

Anyone who has owned Milwaukee Brewers closer Neftali Feliz this season knows how trying the experience has been to say the least.  Having been hit around in a very high amount of outings this season, Feliz might have reached rock bottom Thursday when he gave up 3 hits and 2 earned runs in just .1 IP against the Boston Red Sox.  That outing raised Feliz' ERA to a horrific 6.19 and his WHIP to 1.31.  With the velocity down again this season after a mini-rebound in 2016, a change needs to be made here.  Standing ready to go in Feliz's place is setup man Corey Knebel who has been dominant all season in registering a 1.00 ERA and 1.00 WHIP with 26 K's in 19.1 innings.  Those are closer strikeout numbers for Knebel and it is clear that Feliz belongs with Fernando Rodney, K-Rod, and Jeanmar Gomez as guys who were closers in name only when the season started.  Pick up Knebel now.
