Brewers | John Axford not ready to close just yet

Milwaukee Brewers manager Ron Roenicke indicated Wednesday, April 24, that while he is happy with RP John Axford's performance lately, and Axford could return as closer at some point, he is also happy with RP Jim Henderson in ninth-inning duties. "I think right now, we're not going to flip 'Ax' back in the closer's role," Roenicke said. "I think (Henderson) is doing a nice job. But 'Ax', the way he threw (Tuesday), he could win every ball game he went in if he throws that way. I was really impressed with him."

Fantasy Tip: Henderson should be owned in all leagues as long as he continues to get outs in the ninth inning. Axford is worth hanging onto in deeper formats if you have the roster flexibility, but those in mixed leagues of 12 or fewer teams will want to discard him for the time being.
