2018 FANTASY BASEBALL CLOSING TIME: HUNTER STRICKLAND NAMED CLOSER FOR GIANTS

                                                                 

Mercifully the fantasy baseball community will be spared the Sam Dyson as closer horror show as San Francisco Giants manager Bruce Bochy announced that setup man Hunter Strickland would serve as the team's closer while incumbent Mark Melancon is on the DL with ongoing arm soreness/trouble.  Dyson got absolutely hammered all spring training with an ERA over 11.00 and so the only choice Bochy had was Strickland or lefty Tony Watson.  As often happens, the righty won out and so Strickland should be added where available.  He has been a solid setup man with a high K rate for the last few seasons and he could very well be a decent option while Melancon is sidelined.
