2018 FANTASY BASEBALL CLOSING TIME: ARODYS VIZCAINO A CLOSER ON THE BRINK

When Atlanta Braves closer Arodys Vizcaino was warming up to try and protect a 2-1 lead versus the Washington Nationals Wednesday afternoon, I opined on Twitter (@RotoBoss) that you should all strap in and prepare for a bumpy ride.  Well all it took was two batters for Vizcaino to blow the save by surrendering a home run to Matt Adams and then give up another hit before getting out of the inning.  It is stating the obvious that for as hard as Vizcaino throws, he went into the season one of the least trustworthy closers in all of fantasy baseball and his terrible start has reinforced this notion.  That means we now must turn our attention to eighth inning fireballer A.J. Minter who struck out the side right before Vizcaino threw it all away.  Remember that Minter punched out 26 batters in just 15 innings during a second-half stint with the team last season and so right away we can see some closer ability.  So as we always suggest in a situation such as this, picking up Minter is the way to go in order to get ahead of things.
