Houston Astros RP Pat Neshek (foot) had an MRI on his right foot and will not need surgery. Doctors diagnosed a possible stress fracture in the fifth metatarsal, but it isn't serious.
Fantasy Tip: Neshek has fantasy value as a set-up guy for Chad Qualls, because if Qualls falters then Neshek or Luke Gregerson could close. Wait and see where Neshek ends up before spending a late-round selection.

Houston Astros RPs Luke Gregerson, Chad Qualls and Pat Neshek will all be competing for the closer's job in spring training. Between all three relievers, they have only 95 career saves, with Qualls having 70 of them in 25 combined seasons.
Fantasy Tip: While Qualls has the most experience and most career saves, and he may start out the year as Houston's ninth-inning stopper, if you're drafting a Houston reliever for saves and upside, it should be Gregerson.
