Washington Nationals RP Rafael Soriano will have his playoff fate decided in the next 10 days after RP Drew Storen has locked down the closer's role. Soriano is feeling more comfortable with his setup role and said he'd be ready for the playoffs after a few more games. Soriano preserved a four-run lead with a perfect ninth inning Thursday, Sept. 18. The team's final relief spot for the postseason will likely come down to Soriano and RPs Jerry Blevins, Xavier Cedeno and Blake Treinen. Manager Matt Williams still believes in Soriano.

Washington Nationals RP Ross Detwiler will have a bigger role in the bullpen, according to manager Matt Williams. RP Jerry Blevins will be used as more of a left-handed specialist.
Fantasy Tip: Detwiler has a 1.23 ERA with a .146 opponents' batting average this season. He could sneak into the mix if Rafael Soriano continues to struggle. However, Drew Storen is first in line in that scenario.
