With the news today that Andrew Bailey might need thumb surgery, I'd say it goes like this:

Melancon
Marshall
Broxton
Rodriguez
Pestano

Keep an eye on Frank Francisco. He's having some knee soreness and if he can't go, Jon Rauch could be the guy in NY.

I think that is how I line them up, too.

How are Marshall and Broxton available
No offense intended but if that is the case u might as well wait till definite word comes out and grab that guy
It sounds like saves and closers will be easy to come by in your league

Based on today I would rate
Marshall
Broxton
Way ahead of the others
Melancon distant 3rd others not worthy of consideration for your league right now

Marshall has been named the reds closer so he is the obvious add.



GOODYEAR, Ariz. -- Lefty Sean Marshall will officially open the 2012 season as the Reds' closer, manager Dusty Baker announced after his team's final Spring Training game on Monday.

The move has been anticipated in Reds camp after the club learned that closer Ryan Madson would need season-ending surgery to repair a torn ligament in his elbow. The other option would have been a closer-by-committee set up.

"It's Marshall right now," Baker said after the game, adding he's been impressed with Marshall's spring.
