Hot off the Wire news, rumors and tips

Athletics | Grant Balfour throws

Oakland Athletics RP Grant Balfour (knee) threw 17 pitches in an inning of work against minor leaguers Monday, March 18, and said his knee was not an issue.

Fantasy Tip: Balfour should be ready to go April 1 unless he suffers some sort of setback before then. Ryan Cook will be Balfour's main handcuff all season long. There is a good chance Oakland will look to deal Balfour if they aren't in contention in the summer, so Cook could easily wind up with the majority of save chances for the A's this year.
