The Houston Astros placed RP Anthony Bass (intercostal) on the 15-day disabled list with a right intercostal strain Wednesday, May 14, and recalled RP Josh Fields from Triple-A Oklahoma in a corresponding move. Bass' DL stint is backdated to May 11.
Fantasy Tip: Fields was in consideration for the closer role during the committee approach last month, but since then, Chad Qualls has taken over with a nice little run lately. Qualls should be owned in all leagues now that he has the job to himself for the time being.

Houston Astros manager Bo Porter said RP Josh Fields will not pitch in high-pressure innings for a while. The team will go with a combination of RPs Chad Qualls and Anthony Bass to close, for now.
Fantasy Tip: Qualls started the year as the favorite to close out games with Jesse Crain (shoulder) on the DL, but a rough start ended those hopes. He'll get another shot, along with fellow righty Bass. Qualls has more experience in the role and should be your first target on the waiver wire. Bass is a consolation prize. None of these options particularly stick out, however, so don't rule out Fields or even Raul Valdes usurping Qualls or Bass before Crain returns later this month.

Houston Astros manager Bo Porter said the team will likely go with a closer-by-committee to start the season, as none of the five closing options including RPs Chad Qualls, Joshua Fields, Kevin Chapman, Matt Albers and Anthony Bass have separated themselves in the competition for ninth-inning duties. Qualls had appeared to be the favorite at the start of camp.
Fantasy Tip: Qualls is still probably the favorite to get the majority of looks in the ninth inning, and he's the only guy you should be looking to own to start the year. Jesse Crain will start the season on the DL, but once he's healthy, he could easily take the closing duties to himself.
