You're basically losing Mesa and gaining Mesa for this year.
Now, if you are talking about next year...then sure, Gonzalez is probably the logical option. But, if the wildness continues, he's not a very good closer option and someone I would not want on my fantasy team...much like Mesa this year.
A few extra saves this year would be nice but I'm more interested in the future. Hopefully the extra BB is a result of the injury.
But I can't beat a $1 closer for the next 3 years, even if it is for the Pirates.
