Oakland Athletics manager Bob Melvin said the team will give RP Jim Johnson a break from closing games out in the ninth. RPs Sean Doolittle, Luke Gregerson, Ryan Cook and Dan Otero are all options for save opportunities.
Fantasy Tip: Johnson's struggles may be rooted in mechanical issues, mainly an inconsistent release point. Bench him until he gets back on track; he could still be useful in setup situations if he corrects his flaws. And remember, there's always the chance that Johnson gets his job back to himself before long.
Gregerson and Doolittle are probably your best targets initially for save opps, with Melvin using them based on matchups, but this situation could be frustrating for fantasy owners. Cook is a nice long-term candidate for the role. Otero isn't very intriguing and would probably only see a save chance if others were unavailable.

Oakland Athletics RPs Jim Johnson, Luke Gregerson, Sean Doolittle and Dan Otero are each considered locks for the bullpen for manager Bob Melvin. Left-handed RP Fernando Abad is also expected to get one of the vacant bullpen spot, with RP Evan Scribner looking like a good bet for another spot as a long reliever. That likely leaves on spot from a group of Ps Drew Pomeranz, Josh Lindblom, Joe Savery and Arnold Leon. Lindblom is believed to have the edge in the battle.
