After rising from the cluster of multiple options, J.P. Howell became the lead stopper. This year, he'll be the main understudy to Rafael Soriano; there's slight hope for Howell, because Soriano has an extensive history (including last year). Howell's K rate has climbed in every season despite his soft stuff, but he still has control problems. He'll also miss the first month or so of the season with shoulder fatigue. He might see the occasional chance here and there if Soriano is healthy, but without save chances, Howell is not much better than a waiver wire reliever. Don't overvalue him.
