Twins | Trevor May being scaled back

Tue, 24 May 2016 15:11:50 -0700

Minnesota Twins RP Trevor May has been struggling as the setup man, so manager Paul Molitor said he plans to use RPs Brandon Kintzler and Fernando Abad late in games to take some stress off of May.

Fantasy Tip: May was lights out in April and was gaining steam for a shot at saves with Glen Perkins on the DL and Kevin Jepsen shaky in the ninth. However, an absolutely brutal stretch from May 13 up until last night has changed things. May has allowed 10 earned runs and 14 hits in just 3 1/3 innings in that span. Now he'll pitch in less stressful situations. With Perkins nearing a return, it looks like May's window is closing in order to make an impression for long-term closing duties. If you have more pressing needs in deeper leagues, don't be afraid to cut May loose for now.

Brewers | K-Mart group paying big dividends

Sun, 17 Feb 2013 20:00:18 -0800

Milwaukee Brewers special assistant Dick Groch calls RPs John Axford, Mike Fiers, Jim Henderson and Brandon Kintzler the "K-Mart group," as the four players cost the team a combined $3,500 to bring into the organization. In 2009, Fiers, a 22nd round pick, received a $2,500 signing bonus, while Kintzler was purchased from St. Paul of the Independent League for $1,000. Axford and Henderson were signed after being released from other teams, and didn't cost the team anything. However, all four are expected to play meaningful roles in Milwaukee this season.
