Brewers | Ron Roenicke explains closer switch

Mon, 31 Mar 2014 15:44:20 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said the team wants to give RP Jim Henderson some time to get right before putting him in ninth-inning closing situations. "It's velocity but it's also command and life on a pitch," Roenicke said of what was missing from Henderson, who converted 28 of 32 saves in his first season as closer in 2013. "When you see hitters with him, he does have deception. When he's going at people the right way, they're always late on the ball. They're not getting good swings." Henderson had a 6.00 ERA in nine spring outings with nine hits and five walks in nine innings.

Fantasy Tip: You'll need to hang onto Henderson and hope he can turn things around quickly. If he can't Francisco Rodriguez should continue in the closer role, assuming he doesn't blow up. Run to the waiver wire and scoop up K-Rod.

Brewers | Francisco Rodriguez to close for now

Mon, 31 Mar 2014 14:14:18 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said RP Francisco Rodriguez will be the team's closer for now. The team wants to give RP Jim Henderson some time to get his stuff back.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should look to immediately add Rodriguez in all fantasy leagues, because he will be getting the save opportunities for the near future. Rodriguez's move to the closer role could be temporary, but he could also keep the job if he is successful in the role.

Brewers | Francisco Rodriguez in to close

Mon, 31 Mar 2014 13:44:39 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers RP Francisco Rodriguez is in the game in the ninth inning in a save situation against the Atlanta Braves Monday, March 31.

Fantasy Tip: As Haudricourt mentions, K-Rod didn't look very good in his last few outings this spring, so this may be a sign that Jim Henderson is hurt. Stay tuned.
