CBSSports.com's Jon Heyman is suggesting that RP Jose Veras will close for the team next season. He agreed on a one-year, $4 million deal Tuesday, Dec. 17, with $3.85 million base salary plus a $150,000 buyout on his $5.5 million option for the 2015 season.
Fantasy Tip: A lot can change between now and opening day. But for now, put Veras higher in your closer rankings than Pedro Strop. Veras sacrificed some dominance for control as the closer for the Houston Astros last year. The move to the National League should be nice, but he won't have as long a leash as he did in Houston if his control problems resurface.
