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?'s Fantasy Baseball Closer Hot Seat keeps you informed when you're looking for saves.

  • Philadelphia Phillies RP Brad Lidge
    Reversal on closing timetable?
    Is Brad Lidge ready to return to closing for the Philadelphia Phillies? Lidge gave up one hit, struck out two and generated a flyout from long-time tormenter Albert Pujols yesterday. His fastball was 93-95 mph, and he threw his slider for strikes.
    This was Charlie Manuel's take: "His stuff was better tonight ... Yeah, tonight he looked ready. His stuff was better. His slider was better. His fastball was better. Everything about it was better." If you'd kept Lidge on your bench until his return to closing, you can probably activate him now. Keep in mind that Jose Contreras still might be used for saves if they decide to remain cautious.
