Athletics | Jim Johnson back in closer role?

Oakland Athletics manager Bob Melvin admitted the team has plenty of options for the ninth inning, but the only reliever he mentioned specifically by name was RP Jim Johnson.

Fantasy Tip: It's pretty obvious at this point that Johnson is back in the closer's role. Neither Sean Doolittle or Luke Gregerson performed well with Johnson demoted. Both relievers could see a save chance here or there if Johnson needs resting, but if you own one of them, dropping them for another need is understandable.
