The Colorado Rockies are interested in signing free-agent RPs Grant Balfour (Athletics), Jose Veras (Tigers), Joe Smith (Indians) and Brian Wilson (Dodgers). The Rockies were interested in Wilson before he signed with the Los Angeles Dodgers midseason. They are long shots for Balfour because he lives on the east coast.

Updating a previous report, free-agent RP Jose Veras (Tigers) would have received $4 million next season if the Detroit Tigers had exercised their option on him. It was previously reported that the 2014 club option was $3.25 million but an escalator clause in his contract pushed the amount to $4 million because Veras finished at least 45 games.

The Detroit Tigers declined the $3.25 million option on RP Jose Veras Friday, Nov. 1, making him a free agent. They also reinstated SS Danny Worth (shoulder) from the 60-day disabled list. Veras received a $150,000 buyout.

Detroit Tigers RP Joaquin Benoit was rested Monday, Sept. 2, after having pitched three of the previous four games.
Fantasy Tip: Jose Veras came in for the save in Benoit's absence.

Detroit Tigers manager Jim Leyland said it's unlikely that RPs Joaquin Benoit and Bruce Rondon would be available for either of the games of a doubleheader Friday, Aug. 16, because of their usage in the last few days.
Fantasy Tip: The Tigers lost the first game of the twin bill, so a closer wasn't needed. If a save sitch arises in the nightcap, expect Jose Veras to be deployed in the ninth.

Updating a previous report, Detroit Tigers manager Jim Leyland said RP Jose Veras will be used to pitch in the seventh or eighth innings, meaning RP Joaquin Benoit will continue to serve as the team's closer. However, Veras could fill in in the ninth if Benoit needs to rest. Right-handed hitters are batting only .162 (12-for-75) against Veras with two home runs, eight walks and 30 strikeouts.
Fantasy Tip: Veras can still serve a need in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues thanks to his solid peripherals, but he's likely not worth the roster spot in shallow leagues anymore.

Updating an immediate report, Detroit Tigers president Dave Dombrowski said RP Jose Veras will supplement the roles of RPs Joaquin Benoit and Drew Smyly.
Fantasy Tip: Well there's a bit of a curveball. Benoit has been stellar this season, but he lacks the closing experience to give confidence that he can withstand a playoff race. Veras could still come into play before all is said and done, so we wouldn't drop him. However, he loses significant value in a setup role.
