Mariners | Brandon League loses closer job for now

Seattle Mariners manager Eric Wedge said RP Brandon League will not be the closer for the time being and will be used in other situations. Wedge did not name a temporary replacement and will decide on who will close a game based on the situation. RPs Tom Wilhelmsen, Charlie Furbush and Lucas Luetge appear to be obvious candidates to get save opportunities but RPs Shawn Kelley and Steve Delabar could also get chances.

Fantasy Tip: Since League was the only pitcher in the Mariners' bullpen to have a save this season, it is not clear who will get the ball in save situations moving forward. Tom Wilhelmsen could get the first chance because he has been the setup man for the team this season. None of the relievers appear to be good long-term options since Wedge believes League will have the job again at some point this season.
