Astros | Closer situation on a game-by-game basis

Wed, 02 Apr 2014 08:49:06 -0700

Updating a previous report, Houston Astros RPs Matt Albers, Chad Qualls and Joshua Fields will form the team's closer-by-committee, at least to start the year. In the team's opening day win over the New York Yankees Tuesday, April 1, RP Kevin Chapman stranded three inherited runners in the seventh before RP Chad Qualls induced a double-play groundball after the Yanks scored twice in the eighth. Albers worked a scoreless ninth in a non-save situation. "Tonight Qualls and Albers were able to get the job done," manager Bo Porter said. Porter said his choices in the late innings will depend on game circumstances and matchups.

Astros | Using closer-by-committee

Mon, 24 Mar 2014 08:55:16 -0700

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.
