Nationals | Shawn Kelley could serve as setup man

Sat, 09 Jan 2016 12:29:57 -0800

Washington Nationals RP Shawn Kelley is likely to move into the setup role vacated by Drew Storen after he was dealt to the Toronto Blue Jays, according to general manager Mike Rizzo. He also mentioned RPs Trevor Gott, Felipe Rivero and Blake Treinen as other pitchers who could vie for the eighth-inning job.

Fantasy Tip: Kelley should be of interest to fantasy owners who participate in leagues that use the holds category and he could see an occasional save opportunity on days when Jonathan Papelbon is unavailable. He went 2-2 with a 2.45 ERA in 53 games for San Diego last season, with 63 strikeouts over 51 1/3 innings, and should be targeted in the later rounds of NL-only leagues.

Nationals | Make two cuts

Wed, 12 Mar 2014 06:45:49 -0700

The Washington Nationals reassigned SP A.J. Cole to minor-league camp and optioned P Felipe Rivero to Class AA Harrisburg.

Fantasy Tip: Cole is an attractive long-term keeper prospect who's on most top-100 prospect lists; there's an outside chance he could have a cup of coffee in Washington this season. Rivero, a former Tampa Bay Rays asset, has displayed solid peripherals but hasn't pitched above Class A advanced.

Nationals | Get first look at two RPs

Sun, 16 Feb 2014 18:29:34 -0800

Washington Nationals RPs Felipe Rivero and Blake Treinen threw their first bullpen sessions Sunday, Feb. 16. Both have fastball that reached the mid-90s, and Treinen showed a slide that snaps late and hard. Pitching coach Steve McCatty was impressed by Rivero, who was acquired from the Tampa Bay Rays last week. "He's got a live arm," McCatty said. "Lots of movement."
