Any Sleeper Holds Guys (up and comers)?

Postby Texican » Tue May 29, 2007 9:34 am

Has anyone been called up recently that looks to be an excellent holds guy?

I'm looking through the scrap heap trying to get some holds since half my team is on the DL and the other half is awful.... :-o

Might be worth looking into some of these DL-created closer carousel situations and see if any of the fallout is available. Here's a couple who should roll off the DL in a week to 10 days:

•Owens could be the Marlins' top set-up guy when he returns, if Gregg keeps the closer gig.
•Soria is the best pitcher in the KC pen and should set up Dotel, if not supplant him again.

Also, keep an eye on the Detroit situation. With both Zumaya and Rodney shelved, somebody may step up and become a high-value bridge to Jones. I just don't know who that is right now (or if it'll be one guy).

I always liked Ted DiBiase's Sleeper Hold.

Keep your eye on Mota...he will be off his steroid suspension this week, and will likely work his way into a prominent role in the Mets bullpen.

Dewon Day for the White Sox, Just got called up, he will get you a ton of K's too. Brandon Morrow for Seattle is avialble in a a lot of leagues as well.
Baseball is the only field of endeavor where a man can succeed three times out of ten and be considered a good performer.

Is he cemented in that role? If so, he has some value in my league. If he goes back to starting, I no longer have any use for him.
