Fantasy Baseball Cheap Saves Alert: Brian Wilson Could Miss Some Time
Brian Wilson, my top rated closer, is struggling with an oblique injury that could force him to miss Opening Day. The injury isn’t considered serious, but he could miss a week or two. It’s also an injury that could be aggravated so keep that in mind. That said, I’m not knocking Wilson out of the top slot just yet. Heath Bell (#2) could potentially be traded at some point this year and Joakim Soria (#3) may struggle to get save opportunities for the lowly Royals.
If you are the type of fantasy player that scoops up short-term saves then Sergio Romo is probably the player you want to add. Romo had a 2.18 ERA last year and a 0.97 WHIP. He also had 70 strikeouts in 62 innings.
