2018 FANTASY BASEBALL CLOSING TIME: KYLE BARRACLOUGH LIKELY TAKING OVER MIAMI CLOSER ROLE

In an obvious development that should have taken place weeks ago, Miami Marlins manager Don Mattingly hinted on Wednesday that hard-throwing setup man Kyle Barraclough will likely take over the team's closer role beginning with that day's game.  Having endured Brad Ziegler pitch brutally all season to this point in login a laughable 7.83 ERA, Mattingly really had no choice but to go with the much more potent Barraclough who has a sparkling 1.48 ERA and 27 K's in 24.1 IP.  By now Barraclough should have been owned in most competitive fantasy baseball leagues given the inevitability of Ziegler being removed from he role but it can't hurt to take a look just in case.  While there won't be many save chances on the miserable Marlins, Barraclough has the talent to be a decent closer.
