2018 FANTASY BASEBALL CLOSING TIME: KELVIN HERRERA PLACED ON DL, NATS NOW DOWN TO THIRD-STRING CLOSER

In a season that has been pretty much everything go wrong, the Washington Nationals placed their second closer on the DL in the last month on Wednesday and this time it was Kelvin Herrera as a result of the shoulder injury he suffered in his appearance Tuesday night.  With primary All-Star stopper Sean Doolittle already on the DL, the Nats are now forced to go with the inconsistent Ryan Madson who sports an ugly 4.32 ERA and at the age of 37 has seen his K/9 rate drop sharply from 10.22 in 2017 all the way down to 8.42 this season.  Surely the Nats would love to have Brandon Kintzler right now but the traded him last week given reports that he was leaking clubhouse chatter to the media.  So as it stands now, Madson is a must add given the fact every save is crucial at this late stage of the fantasy baseball season but strap in because it could be a bumpy ride.  As far as Herrera himself is concerned, he reportedly will be out until September.
