Tigers | Jim Leyland leaning Joaquin Benoit

Detroit Tigers manager Jim Leyland is refusing to name a closer in the ninth inning, but he said he would try to use RP Joaquin Benoit in a save situation Thursday, June 20, if he was available.

Fantasy Tip: Leyland has gone to a committee approach to the ninth inning involving Benoit and Jose Valverde, but it looks as though Leyland Benoit right now. Valverde hasn't been completely demoted, but Benoit, and maybe others, will infringe upon his chances. Pick Benoit up immediately if he's still available.
