Pick Up Wickman if you need another closer

Notes: Wickman back at closer
Riske returns to setup role; Hafner looks ahead
By Len Hochberg / MLB.com
Bob Wickman entered Tuesday's game with 156 career saves. (Jeff Glidden/AP)
ANAHEIM -- It's been nearly two years for Bob Wickman.
Almost two years since Aug. 10, 2002, when he left a Major League game with an elbow injury and wondered if he'd ever make it back. He returned just two weeks ago. On Tuesday, he made it all the way back: He's a closer again.
Indians manager Eric Wedge has changed his bullpen stopper for the fourth time this season, returning ineffective David Riske to a setup role and replacing him with the veteran Wickman.

I'm so desperate for saves I picked him up the day he came off the DL.

Thanks for the heads up, hope you are right. I was holding Wickman since he came off the DL thinking this would probably happen.

Well I just picked up Wickman. Hopefully he can get some saves for me since I could use some with only Kolb and Takatsu as my other closers.

Have you guys been living under a rock? This has been coming for a while now. Wickman was picked up in my league almost three weeks ago.
