Hard to say. Benitez hasn't been pitching due to arthritis problems in his knees. He could be back any day though.

Another guy you might want to consider is Adam Wainwright - STL. He is supposadly in the mix to close games while Izzy is out.

Wainwright is also a pretty good pitcher as well. Looper is no good this year.

Man this is my first year on the board and you guys crack me up with the closers. I play roto and keep three stud closers all year and take a middle of the pack score in saves. If one goes down and I can't find a replacement I'll punt the category. Not worth the hit in whip or era in my opinion. Joe Nelson, Ryan Dempster, Burgos, Julio, et al come on :)

Nelson is an okay pickup if you need the saves badly but along with that comes a hit to your ERA and, even more so, your WHIP. Buyer beware!!

Farnsworth will be closing until Thursday at least and maybe longer with Rivera hurt.
