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.
Closer: Huston Street
Understudy: Manuel Corpas
Manager Jim Tracy likely will use Street to close the next time such a situation arises. Street worked on his second consecutive day yesterday, giving up two runs on two hits in picking up the loss.
This pushes Corpas back into a setup role. Don't drop him yet, however. Street doesn't have a clean injury history, and his form during a rehab stint and in the majors so far hasn't been perfect.
Job security score: 4
Health score: 3
