Updating a previous report, Chicago White Sox RP David Robertson is expected to return to the team Sunday, May 1. RP Nate Jones will be the primary closer with Robertson unavailable, but RPs Matt Albers and Zach Duke are possibilities, too, according to manager Robin Ventura.
Fantasy Tip: Jones is worth a flier if you're desperate for saves, but otherwise, Jones, Albers and Duke are fantasy afterthoughts in the majority of leagues. It is nice to know that Jones is next in line, though, so saves vultures could potentially hang onto him. Robertson's job is one of the most secure in the majors, though.

Chicago White Sox RP Matt Albers is unscored upon in his last 30 innings, dating back to last season. It's the longest active streak in the majors.
Fantasy Tip: Albers has a 0.91 WHIP and five K's in 7 2/3 innings. While he's not a must-own strikeout guy, his ratios should help deeper mixed leaguers.
