Does it look like Jim Johnson is now closing for Baltimore for those chasing cheap saves?

Yes, and he's actually not bad, so his ERA and WHIP won't kill you.

If the Cubs/'Stros game is called due to rain, does that mean Melancon gets the save?

What are the chances Farnsworth regains closer role in TB? He's been out a couple weeks now and has just begun to throw from short distances. He's scheduled to throw off the mound and could pitch in-game in the upcoming series vs the Yanks. Is there any chance he regains the closer role before the end of the season? I have Peralta and Farnsworth but if he isn't going to come back there is no reason for him to take up a roster spot.
C - Pierzynski
1b - Dunn
2b - Cano
3b - Beltre
SS - Rotating
OF - Bruce, De Aza, Cespedes
Util - Encarnacion
BN - Asdrubal, Adam Jones, Freddie Freeman

SP - Price, Gallardo, Rotating SP
RP - Myers, Perez, Nathan, Perkins, Wilhelmsen

Latest from Rotoworld

Latest NewsRecent NewsKyle Farnsworth (elbow) said "everything felt good" after throwing 45 pitches off a mound Wednesday.Farnsworth hasn't pitched since September 10 due to a tender elbow, but hopes to be available when the Rays return home Friday. Joel Peralta should continue to handle save chances during his absence. Sep 21 - 12:26 PM
