Hit by a comebacker in the face by Sal Perez, fractured his nose and whatnot.

Pick up JJ Hoover or Jonathan "Guns of" Broxton?

I'd rather Hoover wins the job due to the better ratios I think he'll give. So I think there's more upside there. However I honestly could see them going with Broxton since he's got experience, saves make guys like Hoover expensive, and they have a top closer that should come back by the all-star break. If they had a mediocre guy or if it was a shoulder that has serious risk of keeping him out all year I think they'd give Hoover a shot, but it wouldn't surprise me at all if Broxton got the first shot.

I'd pick up both if I had room. If I only had room for one, it would depend on my league. If closers and most next-in-line types are valued pretty highly in my (deep) league I might take Broxton since I think he's likely to get the first crack at saves, but it'd be close. If there's a couple lower-tier closers or at least the top next-in-line types laying around I'd want to take the upside guy and definitely grab Hoover.

Another question - what is Chapman worth right now in 5x5 HTH redraft? You should get him back full strength around mid-June (?) and have a 5th round / $20 closer from then on. Would you value that over a full season of a 12+ round guy like Balfour or Parnell?
