Braves | Jim Johnson to be closer

Mon, 13 Jul 2015 12:29:55 -0700

Atlanta Braves RP Jim Johnson will serve as the team's closer with RP Jason Grilli (Achilles') out for the rest of the season. However, Johnson has been the subject of persistent trade rumors, and he could be even more valuable as a trade chip now that Grilli is hurt. Johnson had back-to-back 50-save seasons for the Baltimore Orioles in 2012 and 2013 and has a 2.09 ERA and five saves in 44 outings this year, with 31 strikeouts and 14 walks in 43 innings. The team also likes RP Arodys Vizcaino and his 100-mph fastball in a late-inning role, too, and he could become a closer candidate soon.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson should immediately be added in all formats if you're looking for saves. With Johnson being a trade candidate, though, it's not a bad idea to stash Vizcaino now, too, in case he falls into the closer role if Johnson is dealt.

Cubs | Don't have designated closer

Thu, 24 Apr 2014 09:08:56 -0700

Chicago Cubs manager Rick Renteria said he's not sure who his closer is right now. RP Pedro Strop won't be available Thursday, April 24, after throwing 31 pitches Wednesday, April 23.

Fantasy Tip: Not surprising -- no one has stepped up. Hector Rondon has been better than Strop, but Chicago seems to favor using him in setup spots. That could change soon, and he's a decent speculation. Maybe later in the season, Arodys Vizcaino and Kyuji Fujikawa (Tommy John surgery) could chime in, but it's looking like Jose Veras has a solid chance to work his way back into favor. Check if he's available.

Cubs | Arodys Vizcaino throws

Wed, 26 Feb 2014 14:59:24 -0800

Chicago Cubs RP Arodys Vizcaino (elbow) threw one inning in an intrasquad game Wednesday, Feb. 26, walking two and allowing a hit. "I'm just hoping his health continues to not be an issue," manager Rick Renteria said. "His arm is live. (The ball) comes out of there pretty easy. It looks like he's using his secondary pitches in live (batting practice) the way he wants to. If he wants to bury a pitch he does it, if he wants to go off the corners he can."

Cubs | Mutual interest in John Axford

Fri, 06 Dec 2013 15:11:18 -0800

The Chicago Cubs have mutual interest in free-agent RP John Axford (Cardinals) as they look to shore up their closer situation this offseason. Executive Theo Epstein said he won't really know who the team's closer is until the offseason is over. Axford has reportedly heard from 14 teams this winter. The Cubs believe RP Pedro Strop has the stuff to close, and RPs Kyuji Fujikawa (elbow) and Arodys Vizcaino (elbow) are recovering from Tommy John surgery.
