Brewers | John Axford roughed up again

Milwaukee Brewers RP John Axford came in during a tie game in the 10th inning Sunday, April 7, against the Arizona Diamondbacks and he allowed two earned runs and two hits with one strikeout in one-plus innings of work, taking the loss.

Fantasy Tip: Axford did not enter in a save situation, but he was awful nonetheless. He is 0-1 with a 20.25 ERA. While it hasn't been made official, it is likely manager Ron Roenicke will have him work in situations with less pressure, allowing him to straighten out his mechanics. If RP Jim Henderson is available, stash him as a possible close replacement. He worked a perfect ninth inning Sunday, striking out two batters. He hasn't yielded a run in three innings over three appearances.
