2017 FANTASY BASEBALL CLOSING TIME: KEONE KELA LIKELY GOING INTO CLOSER ROLE FOR TEXAS

-The Texans Rangers activated injured reliever Keone Kela on Thursday and there is the strong possibility that the fireballer will go right into the closer role for the team.  On numbers alone this makes perfect sense as Kela has pitched to a 2.64 ERA, 0.80 WHIP, and struck out a closer-like 42 batters in 30.2 innings.  Already the Rangers have been through Matt Bush and Sam Dyson this season but Kela looks like the best of the bunch given the numbers.  He is worth an immediate look to see if he is still available as that pickup could pay big dividends.

-It looks like the Tampa Bay Rays are fully involved in the relief pitcher marketplace and in particular have targeted Miami Marlins closer A.J. Ramos and Detroit Tigers stopper Justin Wilson.  Of course both Ramos and Wilson would move to setup in Tampa Bay behind the very capable Alex Colome but the bigger story then would be picking up their replacements which we think are Kyle Barraclough and Shane Greene respectively.
