2018 FANTASY BASEBALL CLOSING TIME: BRANDON MORROW (BACK) PLACED ON THE DL WEDNESDAY, PEDRO STROP OR STEVE CISHEK THE ADD

After playing with health house money for the first two-plus months of the 2018 fantasy baseball season, the career-long injury issues of Chicago Cubs closer Brandon Morrow reared their ugly heads when he was placed on the 10-day DL Wednesday with the balky back that has kept him out the last few days.  Prior to the injury, Morrow was absolutely fantastic in his first full season closing games as he logged an ERA of 1.59 ERA, 1.15 WHIP, and 25 K in 22.2 IP.  As a result of Morrow going on the DL, top setup man Pedro Strop would be the figurative add as he has been dominant himself with a 1.76 ERA but Steve Cishek has been very good himself with a 2.01 ERA and has much more experience closing games. Of course, Joe Maddon has been known to use committee's in the past during his Tampa Bay days so who knows where he will go with this.
