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.

Calm before another storm?

Mound meetings

  • Despite allowing a leadoff single, Brad Lidge saved a Philadelphia Phillies extra-innings victory Thursday in his third straight appearance without allowing one to cross the dish. For what it's worth, he has walked just one batter in his last five appearances (4 1/3 frames), and the free pass came in his July 31 blow-up. Still, he's putting manager Charlie Manuel at ease for now.
