Broxton I feel might have a shot to close as well if Saito's injury is more serious, or he just starts showing his age in the second half. I dont think either is too likely at this point, but I feel they have the best chance to get future saves this year.
Yup, Betancourt is probably the most forgotten middle reliever right now. Early on everyone was talking about F. Cabrera taking over if Borowski failed but Bet has been stellar since F-Cab's struggles. I liken Betancourt to R. Soriano right now. They are both setting up similar guys in Borowski and Wickman. Betancourt is also likely less owned than a lot of other comparable middle relievers, like Neshek or Broxton.
Another guy to not forget about is Jason Frasor. He is quietly putting up really nice numbers since he lost the closer's job. Accardo has struggled in his past couple of outings. Good insurance for current Accardo owners as I don't see anyone else in Toronto as a viable closer option. Remember, Ryan is gone for sure. It's either Accardo or Frasor for the rest of the year.
