is he going on the DL?

I could be wrong on this, but I don't think teams have any reason to put players on the DL in September with expanded rosters. before September with 25 man rosters a team has to put a player on the DL to add another player to the roster for that time period. now with rosters expanded to whatever, no need for the DL. unless I missremember.


Late, but that's right. The call-up joins the 25-man roster while the injured player is removed from it. With full 40-man rosters available now, the 15-day dl is pointless. Farewell, stashees! :,-(

Edit: I think there are some exceptions to this -- a playoff club may want to have 'enough' players on the dl at the end of the year that those spots can be used as wild cards in choosing players for the postseason roster. But this probably wouldn't affect any fantasy-relevant player.

Chapman shut down.
The Reds will shut down Aroldis Chapman for a few days due to left shoulder fatigue.
Chapman has been dealing with the fatigue for a few days but thinks he'll be fine within the next week. He allowed a three-run homer last Friday and then was removed from Monday's game after walking three batters and throwing just seven of 23 pitches for strikes. The Reds will use Jonathan Broxton and Sean Marshall in the ninth inning for now. "We’re lucky we got to this point," manager Dusty Baker said. "A guy throws 100 mph, he’s gonna fatigue something sooner or later. He’s reaching a plateau he hasn’t reached before. This is another step towards him learning how to be a closer and learn how to work away from the field to maintain his strength at the same time as keeping it on the field."

who is a better option, Broxton or Marshall?

I'd go with Broxton. He got the save last night and has been a closer much longer through his career than Marshall.

Has anyone noticed that Hanrahan hasn't gotten a save in nearly a month (since 8/17)? I know it's all about opportunity but those Hanrahan-owners trying to stay afloat in the Saves column in the playoffs must be rather frustrated.

I hadn't noticed. I guess it's b/c I dealt him and Romo to a guy desperate for saves in my NL-Only league a few weeks ago. Perhaps that didn't work out so well for him.

Reds manager Dusty Baker said Jonathan Broxton is his "No. 1 candidate" to close while Aroldis Chapman (shoulder) is resting, but he'll also look at matchups.
Broxton closed out the Reds' win Tuesday and is the guy in Cincy to own for saves until Chapman is ready. Sean Marshall is worth owning in deeper leagues. "[Broxton] is the No. 1 candidate. But it's matchups, too," Baker said. "If they have three lefties, it could be Marshall. It could be Broxton, it could be [Jose] Arredondo, it could be [J.J.] Hoover. Broxton is the No. 1 choice. We try to limit Broxton to two days in a row, too."

I picked up both Broxton and Marshall. but both have pitched in the last 2 games, Hoover coming in for the save tonight.

I know there really hasn't been much action here for a while now, but for those looking for a save or two to help win their H2H matchups:

Parnell will serve as the Mets' closer for the rest of this season, ESPN.com's Adam Rubin reports.

Recommendation: With Frank Francisco's season all but over, Parnell will get a chance to pitch the ninth inning the rest of the way. The Mets have just six more games on the schedule this season, but Parnell could provide an extra save or two for those still fighting for points in that category.

WTF is going on in LA?! why is Kenley Jansen not closing anymore? he's been back to game action and good to go since his heart issue. FME Mattingly, HE is your closer!

I know and I hate it!

I'm battling for 1st place. both me and the guy in 2nd place are close in saves. with RP/RP/P/P/P I've been using Janssen/Motte/Balfour/Downs/and Jansen. if Jansen wont be closing I might as well grab a maybe reliever off waivers hoping to pick up a save in the final 2 games.
there were 3 non closers pick up saves tonight with Aumont, Hughes, and Wright. ugh.
