Houston Astros manager Bo Porter said the team will use a closer-by-committee after they traded away RP Jose Veras.
Fantasy Tip: Jose Cisnero may be the front-runner for the majority of save chances now, but don't count out Wesley Wright or Joshua Fields. Cisnero should be your first target for those chasing saves, and Wright and Fields are consolation prizes in deep mixed leagues if you're desperate.

Houston Astros manager Bo Porter said RP Jose Cisnero can be trusted to pitch in pressure situations in the bullpen.
Fantasy Tip: This is an important development for Cisnero, since there's a chance Houston trades incumbent closer Jose Veras this summer. However, Cisnero is still behind the likes of Hector Ambriz, Wesley Wright and Joshua Fields for save opps if Veras is dealt.

Houston Astros RP Jose Cisnero is shining in a long relief role out of the bullpen and may be the best option the team has coming out of the bullpen. Cisnero is 2-0 with a 0.42 ERA in his last 10 outings with 23 strikeouts. "Gradually, we've put him into some more intensified situations, and he's answered the bell every time," manager Bo Porter said. "I think moving forward, he's gaining more confidence, we're gaining more confidence in him, and we believe that he'll be a vital part of the success of this organization for many years moving forward."
Fantasy Tip: Cisnero has seen his value increase with each appearance he has made. As long as he continues to put up strong numbers in this role, he is worth putting in your starting roster.

Houston Astros SP Brad Peacock is being moved from the starting rotation to the bullpen. Peacock was 1-3 on the year with an 8.44 ERA after giving up five runs and six hits in 3 1/3 innings to the Boston Red Sox over the weekend. He has gone 4 1/3 frames or less in each of his four starts this year. Manager Bo Porter is hoping that Peacock gains some confidence so he can return to the rotation at some point this season. Ps Paul Clemens, Travis Blackley and Jose Cisnero are all options to replace Peacock in the rotation.
Fantasy Tip: The organization has trust that Peacock can return to a starting role, so it might not be wise to give up on him just yet in deep AL-only leagues. Clemens, Blackley and Cisnero should only be picked up for desperate owners in single-universe formats.
