2018 FANTASY BASEBALL CLOSING TIME: KEN GILES FACING POSSIBLE DL STINT DUE TO BACK INJURY

                                                                  

The last week has brought some confusion from the fantasy baseball community when it came to the status of the team's closer both in the present and moving forward.  Incumbent Ken Giles was passed over not once but TWICE by manager A.J. Hinch as top setup man Chris Devenski successfully nailed down two saves.  Well Hinch cleared things up a bit on Thursday when he revealed that Giles has been dealing with a back injury since last weekend and that a DL stint can't be ruled out.  Hearing this, Giles' fantasy baseball owners received a bit of mixed news in that it was a positive that he was not replaced by Devenski officially but the negative is that he may now hit the DL and give Devenski a chance to run with the gig.  We all know that Devenski is as good as it gets among all relievers and he would be an instant top closer if he did get the gig officially.  For now, anticipate a possible DL stint as Giles once again is delivering nothing but stress to his owners already.
