Status: It's not entirely clear what's going on in Ned Yost's bullpen. Mike DeJean is no longer the closer, but he picked up a save by pitching the final two innings against the Mets on July 29. But aside from that performance DeJean has been typically up and down in set-up work. Leo Estrella looked like a closing option for a time, picking up three saves, but he pitched the seventh inning of the game in which DeJean got a save. That leaves us with ... Kolb. The right-hander has been sharp in 20 innings since being recalled from the minors and has three saves, including one the day before DeJean's. For now, he looks like the top of a very crowded org chart.


Fantasy Insurance: DeJean. If he's not traded, it appears well within the realm of possibility that he'll reclaim the job at some point before the end of the season.


Other Options: Valerio de los Santos also remains an option, although he's had a few rough outing in recent days. Luis Vizcaino were also mentioned by Yost. Vizcaino was a preseason sleeper, but it's tough to ignore that 8.05 ERA.

He'll get the majority of save opportunities, but he is definitely high-risk.
