Blue Jays | Drew Storen fills in, notches save

Mon, 18 Apr 2016 16:07:37 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays RP Drew Storen picked up a save Monday, April 18, against the Boston Red Sox with RP Roberto Osuna (blister) unavailable. It wasn't easy, though, as Storen allowed two runs on three hits in the ninth inning, while striking out one.

Fantasy Tip: Osuna said he "thinks" he'll be ready for Tuesday, so this was just a temporary setup and his owners need not worry. If anything, the shaky outing by Storen today further solidified that Osuna is the team's closer. He'll resume his regular duties whenever he's ready.

Blue Jays | Roberto Osuna won't be available

Tue, 05 Apr 2016 14:08:21 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays RP Roberto Osuna will not be available to pitch Tuesday, April 5, after pitching back-to-back days. RP Drew Storen is expected to pitch in the ninth if a save situation arises.

Fantasy Tip: Osuna is a solid second closer for fantasy owners, but Storen, for reasons like this, remains valuable to owners in deeper mixed and AL-only leagues.

Blue Jays | Roberto Osuna named closer

Wed, 30 Mar 2016 05:21:26 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays RP Roberto Osuna was named the closer over RP Drew Storen Wednesday, March 30. Manager John Gibbons said familiarity was the key.

Fantasy Tip: Osuna had a 2.58 ERA, a 0.92 WHIP and 75 K's in 69 2/3 innings last year while converting 20 of 23 saves. He bumps up to the low-end RP2 or high-end RP3 range while Storen plummets to the low-end RP3 range.

Blue Jays | Drew Storen turning heads in camp

Sat, 27 Feb 2016 20:30:12 -0800

Toronto Blue Jays RP Drew Storen had another strong bullpen session Saturday, Feb. 27, and he is drawing rave reviews from his teammates and coaching staff. The team hasn't made an official announcement, but he is projected to serve as the team's closer.

Fantasy Tip: Storen has closing experience from his time in Washington. If he suffers some sort of backslide, Roberto Osuna is waiting in the wings for another chance at ninth-inning duties.

Blue Jays | Drew Storen the favorite to close

Sat, 20 Feb 2016 13:35:53 -0800

Toronto Blue Jays RP Drew Storen is the favorite to close, according to manager John Gibbons. " Storen is pretty much a one-inning guy," Gibbons said. "And I think you can stretch (Roberto Osuna) out a little bit, say maybe an inning-plus. So if that's the case, I don't know, maybe that gives the edge to Storen as the closer. And maybe you can use Roberto some different ways. We'll see."

Fantasy Tip: Storen is a midrange RP2 if he lands the job. Osuna is worth taking as a third or fourth reliever.

Blue Jays | Drew Storen the closer in Toronto?

Mon, 01 Feb 2016 14:17:09 -0800

Toronto Blue Jays RP Drew Storen looks to be the likely closer for the Blue Jays in 2016 over RP Roberto Osuna, although Toronto could have a competition for the role deep into spring training. There is no rush to make a decision. Storen has more experience as a closer and will be paid $8.375 million. Osuna is a former starter, too, and it could be attractive to have the option of using him for multiple innings as a setup man. RP Aaron Sanchez is a dark horse candidate, but it looks like he'll have the chance to win a starting job this spring.

Fantasy Tip: You'll have to keep a close eye on the competition this spring, but if you're drafting before then, speculate on Storen once the top closers come off the board. Whoever loses the job will lose significant fantasy value as a reliever.

Blue Jays | Drew Storen lands north of $8 million

Fri, 15 Jan 2016 09:52:38 -0800

Toronto Blue Jays RP Drew Storen avoided arbitration by signing a one-year, $8.375 million deal Friday, Jan. 15.

Fantasy Tip: Storen was a capable closer before the Nats relegated him to setup duty with the arrival of Jonathan Papelbon. He could close in Toronto and would be a decent RP2.

Blue Jays | TOR closer situation remains uncertain

Sun, 10 Jan 2016 09:17:00 -0800

Toronto Blue Jays general manager Ross Atkins isn't ready to commit to using either RP Roberto Osuna or RP Drew Storen as the team's closer in 2016.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like we'll have to wait until spring training camp to see how this battle is resolved. Osuna saved 20 games in 68 relief appearances while posting a 2.58 ERA during his rookie season, with 75 strikeouts over 69 2/3 innings. Storen earned 29 saves in 58 games for Washington last season, with a 3.44 ERA and 67 strikeouts over 55 innings before being demoted to a setup role after the Nats acquired Jonathan Papelbon. For now, keep both relievers on your radar in AL-only and deep mixed fantasy leagues.

Nationals | Ben Revere joins Washington

Sat, 09 Jan 2016 05:08:00 -0800

Toronto Blue Jays OF Ben Revere was acquired by the Washington Nationals Friday, Jan. 8, in exchange for RP Drew Storen. The Nationals will also receive a player to be named later.

Fantasy Tip: Revere may have a chance to be the starting center fielder for the Nationals if they are not sold on Michael Taylor being an everyday player. Revere will help owners with his batting average and stolen bases this upcoming season and could be a late-round option in drafts.

Blue Jays | Toronto adds Drew Storen

Sat, 09 Jan 2016 05:05:57 -0800

Washington Nationals RP Drew Storen was acquired by the Toronto Blue Jays Friday, Jan. 8, in exchange for OF Ben Revere and a player to be named later.

Fantasy Tip: Storen probably will receive a chance to win the closer job for the Blue Jays during spring training, so owners should monitor the situation. He likely would receive plenty of save opportunities if he wins the job and could be a solid middle-round option in most mixed leagues.
