Seattle Mariners manager Eric Wedge said Wednesday, April 17, that RP Carter Capps will be the setup man to RP Tom Wilhelmsen, with RP Oliver Perez likely the late-inning guy when the team is ahead.
Fantasy Tip: Wilhelmsen is the clear-cut closer in Seattle, and the skipper might mix and match with Capps and Perez as setup men late in games when they are ahead. Wilhelmsen is a must-have in all AL-only leagues and some deeper mixed formats, while Capps and Perez are only worth a look in deeper AL rotisserie play for help in the ERA and WHIP categories.

Seattle Mariners RP Carter Capps has been relying too much on his fastball; he threw 36 fastballs of his 39 pitches Wednesday, Aug. 29, and manager Eric Wedge would like to see Capps mix in his curveball more often. Capps allowed three runs and four hits to see his ERA rise to 5.87. "It should have been a good experience for him," said Wedge. "He was able to throw 35-40 pitches, but he has to use all his pitches. That was just way too many fastballs. He has a great fastball, but up here these big league hitters, it doesn't matter how hard you throw, they can turn it around." Capps hit 100 mph in his outing Wednesday.
