Nationals | Shawn Kelley anointed the guy

Fri, 17 Jun 2016 07:03:48 -0700

Washington Nationals RP Shawn Kelley was named the interim closer while RP Jonathan Papelbon (intercostal) is out.

Fantasy Tip: Kelley has a lengthy injury history of his own, but his numbers can be staggering when he's healthy. He has 35 K's in 25 2/3 innings and a 0.82 WHIP, which spells success in the short term. He's worth owning everywhere.

Nationals | Shawn Kelley earns second save

Fri, 17 Jun 2016 05:01:36 -0700

Washington Nationals RP Shawn Kelley recorded his second save in as many games Thursday, June 16, as the Nationals beat the San Diego Padres 8-5.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like the Nationals may have found a closer. Manager Dusty Baker was adamant about wanting a set closer and Kelley has stepped up to the plate. As long as Jonathan Papelbon is not available, Kelley should be picked up for all formats.

Nationals | No set closer with Papelbon out

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 11:58:25 -0700

Washington Nationals manager Dusty Baker isn't committing to one fill-in closer with RP Jonathan Papelbon (intercostal) on the disabled list. However, Baker likes RP Shawn Kelley, but the Nationals must be careful with the reliever who has had two Tommy John surgeries.

Fantasy Tip: Kelley is the favorite to see most of the save chances with Paps out, and he pitched 1 2/3 frames for his first save of the year Monday night. Kelley is having a fine year with a 2.70 ERA, 0.85 WHIP and 34 K's in 23 1/3 innings. Felipe Rivero, Blake Treinen and Sammy Solis all could be options in the ninth if Kelley is rested, though, but they're purely speculative pick-ups in much deeper leagues if you're desperate for saves.

Nationals | Shawn Kelley nails down save

Mon, 13 Jun 2016 19:59:09 -0700

Washington Nationals RP Shawn Kelley picked up a five-out save Monday, June 13, against the Chicago Cubs, working 1 2/3 perfect innings while striking out four batters in the 21-pitch effort. RP Jonathan Papelbon (undisclosed) was held out by manager Dusty Baker due to soreness.

Fantasy Tip: Kelley was dominant for his first save of the season, while Papelbon has struggled recently. Baker has said Papelbon's job is safe, but after this performance it's a good idea for those in NL-only fantasy leagues, especially owners of Papelbon, to head to the waiver wire and spend some FAAB budget on Kelley.
