Athletics | Ryan Cook out as closer for now

Oakland Athletics manager Bob Melvin said RP Ryan Cook will be taken out of the closer role for now and will be used in lower-pressure situations. Melvin did not name a temporary closer and said there are several options to use.

Fantasy Tip: Melvin was reluctant, but he has only a couple of legit possibilities, as Closer Hot Seat discussed at the beginning of this past week as well as on other occasions. Fantasy owners should target Grant Balfour and then Sean Doolittle.
