Fantasy Baseball Closer Hot Seat - NL

by Tim Heaney on July 20, 2010 @ 13:30:00 PDT


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.

Colorado Rockies RP Huston Street

Mound meetings

  • Huston Street blew his first save chance in seven tries this season, giving up a two-out, two-run jack to let a one-run Colorado Rockies lead slip away. Caution: In his limited action this season, his grounder rate is well below his career average, and his fly-ball frequency is higher. His job security isn't a concern, but keep an eye on that indicator.
