Houston Astros RPs Joshua Fields and Chia-Jen Lo have become the two options for saves in the team's closer-by-committee setup. "I'll fluctuate between (Lo and Fields) based on the workload previously leading up to that game," manager Bo Porter said. "But it's a good option to have both of those guys pitching well." Lo recorded his first major league save last Tuesday, and Fields notched his first save Aug. 5. Lo has been injury-prone in the minors, so Porter intends to use him anytime he's warming up in the bullpen.
Fantasy Tip: Fields is probably the better option if you're choosing between the two because the team might want to be cautious with Lo's workload. Other than that, it could be dead even for save chances. Both should be owned in cavernous mixed leagues.
