In fantasy baseball, the closer position remains volatile. Rarely does every closer hang on to the job for an entire season - injuries, poor performance and managerial decisions can cloud a team's bullpen picture.

Should you be concerned about a struggling stopper? Which relievers are climbing the depth chart? Are any injuries popping up? KFFL.com's Fantasy Baseball Closer Hot Seat keeps you informed when you're looking for saves.

 

Mound meetings

  • Colorado Rockies RP Huston Street
    Street on track for re-opening
    An MRI on Philadelphia Phillies closer Brad Lidge's elbow showed no structural damage or loose bodies. More good news: His elbow is healing properly.
    There is some inflammation in the lining of his elbow joint, but he's listed as day-to-day. Jose Contreras is the guy in the ninth until Lidge is deemed ready.
  • The Colorado Rockies' Huston Street (shoulder) made his first rehab appearance yesterday at Double-A Tulsa. He threw nine of his 12 pitches for strikes, gave up one hit and struck out one in one inning.
    His next appearance will be Saturday, followed by two innings next Tuesday and back-to-back outings next weekend. If all goes well, he's on track to be activated May 25. That will probably spell the end of Manuel Corpas' time as interim closer.
