In fantasy baseball, the closer position remains volatile. Rarely does every closer hang on to the job for the entire season - injuries, poor performance and managerial decisions can cloud a team's bullpen picture.

Should you be concerned about a struggling stopper? Which setup men are climbing the depth chart? Any lingering injuries popping up?'s Fantasy Baseball Closer Hot Seat series keeps you informed when you're looking for saves.

Mound meetings

  • The Colorado Rockies' Manny Corpas (elbow) is expected to leave the DL Thursday and return to his next-in-line status. He has shown his health in 2 2/3 shutout rehab innings for Triple-A Colorado Springs with three K's, one walk and a .222 opponents' clip. As we've previously noted, the Rox probably won't ship stopper Huston Street if they remain in postseason contention. If unowned in NLs, Corpas shouldn't be left unhitched. If you've retained him on your DL in deep mixed, you might as well see what he can offer you, especially if you're desperate for closure.
