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.

Mound meetings

  • Minnesota Twins RP Jon Rauch
    We have Rauch, Feliz sightings!
    After going with Matt Guerrier in an eventful save opp Tuesday, the Minnesota Twins turned to stopper Jon Rauch for a non-save appearance Wednesday. The righty allowed a hit in a scoreless wrap-up in his first action since June 5.
  • Despite leading 12-2 in the ninth, the Texas Rangers gave Neftali Feliz his first work since June 4. The righty pitched two-thirds of an inning, allowing one walk while striking out one. He had plenty of cushion, at least.
