Hot off the Wire news, rumors and tips

Astros | Using closer-by-committee

Houston Astros manager Bo Porter said the team will likely go with a closer-by-committee to start the season, as none of the five closing options including RPs Chad Qualls, Joshua Fields, Kevin Chapman, Matt Albers and Anthony Bass have separated themselves in the competition for ninth-inning duties. Qualls had appeared to be the favorite at the start of camp.

Fantasy Tip: Qualls is still probably the favorite to get the majority of looks in the ninth inning, and he's the only guy you should be looking to own to start the year. Jesse Crain will start the season on the DL, but once he's healthy, he could easily take the closing duties to himself.
