I like Linebrink...... Tom Gordon is an obvious option but he's probably already taken.

It must be a really good league if all the relievers that have already been mentioned are gone. If so, props for being in that competetive a league ;-D , and looking into deep sleeper middle relievers.............. Consider Kiko Calero.

Kiko Calero is , reliever for the Cardinals. Out of 23 relief appearances this year he has only given up earned runs in 3 of those appearances. Only two of those three appearances were bad outings. An injury forced him to the DL relatively early last year after he started out putting up great relief numbers, and held him out of a little more than the first month of this season. His numbers are almost as strong as last year since returning so far. He isnt factoring into decisions or getting saves yet and might not. His ERA/K/WHIP help are fairly impressive as a middle reliever so far though. Season stats are 24.7INN, 27K's, 3.284ERA, and a very impressive 0.892WHIP.

Not much name recognition for him at all, but a decent MR option if you need help in a very deep league.

Kiko's popped up a couple times in the past few seasons when I was looking for a holds guy. I think he was even given the closer role, even if for a week, sometime last season. I might be confusing him with Eldred though.

Anyway, a guy this good with K's and WHIP, and as seemingly the next-in-line closer behind Izzy, who isn't the youngest or healthiest closer around, he's definately worth a shot in leagues that count holds. And even deep leagues that don't.

Correct. He was used in an emergency closer and got a save last year and was then named the interm closer. He blew his first few chances and lost it just as quickly though.
