Nationals | Setup role not set in stone

Washington Nationals manager Davey Johnson said the eighth inning setup role isn't etched in stone after he used RP Tyler Clippard in that spot Monday, April 1. Johnson plans to use RP Drew Storen in the eighth if the situation arises Wednesday, April 3. The role will be determined on a game-by-game basis.

Fantasy Tip: Storen and Clippard are good enough to own in NL-only leagues, and Storen would probably be the handcuff option to closer Rafael Soriano in cavernous mixed formats. However, a lot would likely have to go wrong with Soriano for him to lose the job.
