Red Sox | Junichi Tazawa to be closer

Boston Red Sox manager John Farrell said he'd like to use RP Junichi Tazawa as the team's closer with both RPs Andrew Bailey (biceps) and Joel Hanrahan (forearm) injured. RP Koji Uehara is expected to stay as the eighth-inning setup man.

Fantasy Tip: Bailey landed on the disabled list yesterday and Hanrahan is likely headed there after straining his right forearm last night. Run to the waiver wire to pick up Tazawa immediately. Uehara could be a long-term option for some save chances, though, especially if Bailey doesn't stay healthy this year, and he's worth a roster spot in deep mixed leagues for his skills alone.
