Broxton or Holland

I don't like the news on Soria. Who will be next in line?

Not sure. I would probably take Broxton but no guarantee on either.

I went with Broxton. I think Holland is a MUCH better set up guy than he is a closer, and Broxton has experience closing in the past. Just a hunch, but I went with Broxton

This is from Rotowire:
Broxton pitched a scoreless inning during Saturday's exhibition game against the Padres, walking one and striking out one.

It wasn't as sharp as his last outing, but Broxton pitched around a leadoff walk and threw 10 of his 15 pitches for strikes. He's looked good so far this spring and appears to have fully recovered from his offseason arthroscopic elbow surgery.

Considering Broxton's previous closers experience, he's got to be the guy to get if there is Soria trouble.

I went with Holland in my dynasty league (where I own Soria), but Broxton is probably the guy that will get first crack. Reason I picked Holland though, is I don't expect Broxton's elbow to hold up until he proves he's durable again.

But as all the others said, Brox is probably first in line. Would make sense since Brox was paid big money to set up in KC and he has closer experience. However, Holland does have 2 saves in ST (which obviously doesn't mean anything) but I'm guessing they put him out there in the 9th in save opps so he could get a taste of pitching the last 3 outs of a game.

I honestly think I'm going to roster all 3 (Soria, Brox, Holland) for the next week or so until this mess is settled since whoever is the closer out of that 3 has top 10 RP potential, IMO.

I was going to ask the same question; my feeling is Broxton is #1, but Aaron Crow is #2, Greg Holland is #3.

Crow is in the rotation.

I went with Holland because I have no faith in Broxton being healthy and effective. Even if Holland doesn't get any saves he is a decent play in a roto leagues with IP limits.
