2018 FANTASY BASEBALL CLOSING TIME: JOAKIM SORIA YET ANOTHER CLOSER ON THE MOVE, JACE FRY GETS A PROMOTION

While on paper he looked like one of the worst closers for 2018 fantasy baseball heading into the season, veteran stopper Joakim Soria had the closer gig all to himself for the Chicago White Sox to begin the year.  Despite losing the gig temporarily early on, Soria wound up pitching very well to the tune of a 2.56 ERA, 1.16 WHIP, and 49 K in 38.2 IP finishing games for the Sox which likely caused his trade market to expand to the point he was finally moved to the Milwaukee Brewers on Thursday.  Soria will now step into a setup role in front of Brewers closer Corey Knebel and so like with Zach Britton a few days ago, he loses almost all of his fantasy baseball value. 

The flip side here is that Jace Fry should get a look as the new White Sox closer as the 25-year-old has logged a solid 3.86 ERA and a closer-like 11.27 K/9 while working in setup.  As a result, Fry should be added where available and immediately since the saves chase is intense with all of these recent changes around the game lately.
