Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim RPs Ernesto Frieri and Dane De La Rosa will split the closer duties for the time being, according to manager Mike Scioscia. Frieri tossed two scoreless innings Saturday, Aug. 17, and hasn't given up a run in his last three appearances, but Scioscia isn't ready to install him back in the role. De La Rosa has a team-high 56 appearances and has one save in four chances.
Fantasy Tip: Both pitchers deserved to be owned in all formats if you're chasing saves at this late juncture. Frieri, if he continues to pitch well, could get the gig back exclusively. Until that happens, though, De La Rosa will see opps.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim RP Ernesto Frieri has temporarily lost his closer job and will be used in low-pressure situations for now.
Fantasy Tip: It appears Dane De La Rosa will get the first chance to close games out, but Kevin Jepsen and Michael Kohn could also receive opportunities. De La Rosa should be an option for mixed league owners looking for saves. Jepsen and Kohn should be targeted in AL-only leagues and some mixed leagues if an owner is desperate, but they may not be good pickups because Frieri could regain the job at some point.
