Angels | Kevin Jepsen wants closer's role

Mon, 23 Jun 2014 20:45:03 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim RP Kevin Jepsen asked pitching coach Mike Butcher for another chance to close for the team after he blew a save opportunity Saturday, June 21. "I told Butch, 'Don't let that one outing change your decisions,' I want that opportunity," Jepsen said. "In that situation, I'm coming right after guys. I'm not going to walk a guy or shy away from contact."

Fantasy Tip: While it's nice that Jepsen isn't shying away from the pressure, it would be even nicer had he closed out the game Saturday. As it stands, Joe Smith will likely get another chance to show he can handle the ninth inning.

Angels | Ernesto Frieri loses closer job for now

Sat, 10 Aug 2013 18:10:02 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim RP Ernesto Frieri has temporarily lost his closer job and will be used in low-pressure situations for now.

Fantasy Tip: It appears Dane De La Rosa will get the first chance to close games out, but Kevin Jepsen and Michael Kohn could also receive opportunities. De La Rosa should be an option for mixed league owners looking for saves. Jepsen and Kohn should be targeted in AL-only leagues and some mixed leagues if an owner is desperate, but they may not be good pickups because Frieri could regain the job at some point.
