Boston Red Sox RP Jean Machi has been named the team's closer, according to interim manager Torey Lovullo. RP Junichi Tazawa, who had been closing games, will return to his eighth-inning role.
Fantasy Tip: Entering play Sunday, Aug. 30, Machi was 1-0 with a 1.39 ERA and three saves through 46 games this season. He should be grabbed in AL-only and deep mixed leagues if you are desperate for saves.

Boston Red Sox RP Jean Machi was used in the eighth inning Tuesday, Aug. 11, against the Miami Marlins. He worked a scoreless frame while RP Junichi Tazawa blew the save chance.
Fantasy Tip: Machi and Tazawa are expected to see save chances with Koji Uehara sidelined for the season, and so far it is advantage Machi in terms of fantasy appeal in AL-only formats.

Boston Red Sox RP Jean Machi will close with RP Koji Uehara (wrist) sidelined, according to manager John Farrell. Machi only has three career saves.
Fantasy Tip: Surprisingly, newly acquired Machi will close games over Junichi Tazawa, who has been getting the job done as Uehara's eighth-inning setup man. Run to the waiver wire and add Machi immediately if you're in need of saves. Tazawa could vulture a save here or there, but you can largely avoid him for now.
