Athletics | Ryan Madson expected to be setup man

Thu, 11 Feb 2016 10:02:54 -0800

Oakland Athletics RP Ryan Madson is expected to serve as the eighth-inning setup man for RP Sean Doolittle, with RPs John Axford and Liam Hendriks.

Fantasy Tip: Doolittle is coming off an injury marred season, so Madson, and in deeper leagues, Axford, makes sense as fantasy handcuffs to Doolittle. Madson could also be useful for his strikeouts abilities in deeper leagues.

Athletics | Sean Doolittle to continue closing for A's

Fri, 11 Dec 2015 19:15:09 -0800

Oakland Athletics RP Sean Doolittle will serve as the team's closer entering the 2016 season, despite their recent acquisitions of RPs John Axford and Ryan Madson, according to general manager David Forst.

Fantasy Tip: The 29-year-old Doolittle made the 2014 American League All-Star team while saving 22 games but only recorded four saves in 12 games during an injury-plagued 2015 campaign. Axford and Madson will serve primarily as set-up men for the A's, although they could see ninth-inning opportunities if Doolittle struggles, gets hurt or needs an occasional break.

Athletics | John Axford agrees with A's

Wed, 09 Dec 2015 08:53:14 -0800

Free-agent RP John Axford (Rockies) agreed to an undisclosed deal with the Oakland Athletics Wednesday, Dec. 9, pending a physical.

Fantasy Tip: The Athletics' closer spot isn't set in stone after Sean Doolittle's 2014 was saddled with injuries. Axford could be a reliever to consider in the final couple of rounds of drafts.
