Ten players who could soon help in saves
In the past week we've seen one established closer moved from the NL to the AL where he gets to continue closing (Huston Street), while on Wednesday another ninth-inning option stayed in the AL but saves don't appear to be close to his immediate future (Joakim Soria). This is obviously a big deal for fantasy owners. No longer do we want Soria and Joe Smith, and suddenly we do want Joaquin Benoit and Neftali Feliz. But for how long? And more trades involving relief pitchers figure to be on the horizon for the next week, with the non-waiver deadline coming on the final day of July.
Here are 10 names of players not currently earning saves that I'm looking at to potentially get saves. It could start in the next week or happen in September or perhaps not until 2015, for you dynasty- and keeper-league owners.
