Colorado Rockies manager Walt Weiss is unsure who he'll turn to Wednesday, May 22, if a save situation arises with RP Rafael Betancourt (groin) unavailable. RPs Rex Brothers, Wilton Lopez or Matt Belisle are all options, but Weiss could play the matchups.
Fantasy Tip: Brothers is likely to receive the first crack at a save situation, unless Weiss plays the matchups in the ninth. If you already own Brothers in a deep league, hang onto him a bit longer until we know for sure that Betancourt is out of the woods. It's probably not worth adding Brothers otherwise.

They want to find a reliever who can compete for the closer role with RP Rafael Betancourt.
