2018 FANTASY BASEBALL BREAKING NEWS: BRAD BOXBERGER NAMED DIAMONDBACKS CLOSER

In yet another indication that teams are now valuing the setup role just as much as their closer, the Arizona Diamondbacks have named Brad Boxberger to be the stopper to begin the year over the presumed Archie Bradley.  Bradley's ability to excel in setup and pitch multiple innings was likely the impetus for Boxberger being given the role and so the latter needs to be picked up everywhere.  As far as Boxberger is concerned, he did well closing games for the Rays a few years ago and had the very high K stuff to be solid again. The negatives center on occasional problems with walks and homers which means Bradley owners should still keep him around.
