Los Angeles Dodgers RP Brandon League won't be trusted in late-inning situations in close games anymore, according to manager Don Mattingly. RP Ronald Belisario will now be the eighth-inning setup man to RP Kenley Jansen, and the team will mix and match in the seventh inning between RPs Paco Rodriguez and Peter Moylan. League will be used in low-pressure situations to "start piecing him back together." The Dodgers think League is opening up his shoulder too soon in his delivery, which makes it easier for opponents to see his pitches.
Fantasy Tip: If he corrects his mechanical flaws, League could move back to important late-inning work, but he has virtually no shot at unseating Jansen as the closer again. Feel free to drop League in all formats.
