2017 FANTASY BASEBALL TRADE DEADLINE FALLOUT: PAT NESHEK CRUCIAL BULLPEN GET FOR ROCKIES

The Colorado Rockies plugged some holes in a recently leaking bullpen late Wednesday when they acquired dominant setup man Pat Neshek from the Philadelphia Phillies for minor league RHP D.J. Hammer, RHP Alejandro Requena, and infielder Jose Gomez.  Neshek will move right into a top setup role in front of All-Star closer Greg Holland and to say that the sidearmer has been dominant would be a gross understatement.  Pitching to a 1.12 ERA and .82 WHIP, Neshek's funky delivery has always been a handful for opposing batters.  He also has struck out 45 in 40.1 innings as well which has made Neshek the rare setup man who has value in fantasy baseball leagues that don't count holds.  While Neshek is not in line for saves with Holland excelling himself, he is still a big add to a team that has been surprisingly competitive this season.
