Detroit Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski said that the club isn't looking for a closer, but instead a seventh- or eighth-inning depth arm. RP Joel Hanrahan (elbow) may be that guy once he returns from rehab.
Fantasy Tip: That's support for Joe Nathan, who has struggled a bit lately. Joba Chamberlain is next in line for Tigs saves under this current roster construction.

Detroit Tigers RP Joel Hanrahan (elbow) is expected to be ready to pitch for the team in mid to late June, according to his agent, Larry Reynolds.
Fantasy Tip: Hanrahan obviously won't be a closing option for the Tigers immediately, unless the situation in the ninth is in dire straights by then. There's no urgency to add him as saves speculation in mixed leagues anytime soon.

The Detroit Tigers signed free-agent RP Joel Hanrahan (Red Sox) to an undisclosed deal.
Fantasy Tip: Detroit's bullpen has been a weak spot after the first month, and although Joe Nathan remains as the closer, the signing of Hanrahan will give Brad Ausmus another experienced option should he continue to falter.

Because every righthanded bullpen member of the Philadelphia Phillies has been demoted to Triple-A with the exception of CL Jonathan Papelbon, general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. has indicated the team is looking outside for help. "We've already started looking outside with other teams and also with possible free agents. We've touched base with a couple of them to see if they're fits," said Amaro, who also indicated if someone like free-agent CL Joel Hanrahan indicated an interest in signing the team would find a way to make it happen.

The Detroit Tigers, New York Yankees, Texas Rangers, Boston Red Sox and Colorado Rockies are believed to be showing interest in free-agent RP Joel Hanrahan (Red Sox), and he's likely to sign with a team before holding another showcase. He's believed to have already received multiple offers. Hanrahan hit 92-93 mph on the radar gun a few weeks ago, and scouts said he was in excellent shape.
Fantasy Tip: Hanrahan could become quite valuable to fantasy owners depending on where he lands. He may not be a closing option right away for the team that lands him, but it might not be long before he's in consideration to pitch the ninth. Consider grabbing him now if you're in need.

Free-agent RP Joel Hanrahan (elbow) won't be pitching in the big leagues until mid-June at the earliest, according to a New York Mets official.
Fantasy Tip: Regardless of that timetable, you should still have Hanrahan on your watch list if you're looking to vulture some saves off the waiver wire. Hanrahan will likely enter a picture where the saves situation is dicey.
