Indians | John Axford removed from closer role

The Cleveland Indians have removed RP John Axford from the closer role. There won't be a set ninth-inning arm, but Cody Allen, Scott Atchison, Marc Rzepczynski and Bryan Shaw will see chances, per Terry Francona.

Fantasy Tip: Allen and Shaw, in that order, are your best pickups, and going further down the chart right now in mixed leagues with Atchison and Rzepczynski for speculation won't pay off. Ax will work in less stressful innings but could get the job back down the line. Your commitment depends on your roster structure and need to wait this out.
