MLB Closer Report: Craig Kimbrel, Kenley Jansen, Greg Holland, More

Let’s talk about major league bullpens. They suck. Closers suck. Trying to get saves sucks. Managers suck. Check out our FFLockerRoom Fantasy Sports show on YouTube from last night and you’ll see just how I feel about closers, bullpens and more importantly managers. Starting at about the 53:15 mark and I just kind of lose it shortly after the 55:00 mark.

So saves are the elephant in the room. It’s why when people talk about punting a category it’s always saves they are talking about. At the same time, there are always times you simply stumble into being competitive in the saves category. Perhaps you drafted Francisco Rodriguez and LaTroy Hawkins with two very late picks and now you have 15 saves to show for it. Good for you. For anyone else, it’s always too early to punt. Keep on trucking. We’ll go through our tiers and discuss the situations worth mentioning. Now onto the MLB Closer Report: Craig Kimbrel, Kenly Jansen, Greg Holland, More from FFLockerRoom Fantasy Sports. 


Craig Kimbrel, ATL

Kenley Jansen, LAD

Greg Holland, KC

Koji Uehara, BOS

Kimbrel’s shoulder soreness has me a tad concerned but he looked good closing out yesterday’s game with 2 K’s so keep your fingers crossed. Jansen has the monster K total but I’m concerned that the Dodgers are overworking him right now. Hopefully he gets a day off soon.

    Great job Jon. As volatile as the closer position is, yet as important as it is for fantasy baseball it is great to see this list each and every week! Time to hit the waiver wire in my league!
