Milwaukee Brewers RP Jim Henderson is Plan B if RP John Axford continues to struggle in the ninth inning. RP Mike Gonzalez has closed games in the past, but he's still trying to gain the trust of manager Ron Roenicke. RP Alfredo Figaro is a former starter who is transitioning to the role of relief pitcher. Axford had another bad outing Wednesday, April 3, and his fastball velocity was 91-92 mph, when he can normally hit 97 mph.
Fantasy Tip: If you own Axford and have the room to stash Henderson, it wouldn't be a terrible idea. On the other hand, if you're desperate for some saves already, Henderson isn't a bad speculative target in case Axford continues to struggle.
