Rockies | Could use closer-by-committee

Colorado Rockies manager Walt Weiss said he could use a closer-by-committee between RPs LaTroy Hawkins and Rex Brothers this season, depending on matchups in the ninth inning. Hawkins isn't a fan of the closer title, and he wouldn't mind it if Brothers sees the majority of save chances as the season progresses. "I love him," Hawkins said. "He's got a great arm. I've been saying it from Day 1, I'm just keeping that seat warm. That's all, just keeping it warm. When he's ready, I'll give it to him. That's Brothers' inning. He has way more years doing that job than I do."

Fantasy Tip: Brothers is widely seen as the more valuable commodity, since he has age and upside on his side. Both relievers are worth owning in mixed leagues, but they should come off the draft board after most of the other closer hopefuls do.
