Houston Astros RP Will Harris has been one of baseball's better relief pitchers this year. He entered the day Wednesday, May 25, with a 0.44 ERA and 0.63 WHIP. He posted a 1.90 ERA in 71 innings in 2015 with Houston. Harris has a string of 19 straight scoreless appearances, which is the longest active streak in the majors and the longest for an Astros reliever since Wilton Lopez went 20 straight in 2010. He has mainly served as the team's eighth-inning setup man because of RP Ken Giles' struggles. Opponents are hitting .120 against Harris' curveball.
Fantasy Tip: Harris' numbers and Giles' struggles have led many in deeper mixed and AL-only leagues to scoop him up for his numbers alone. It's unknown who would receive the first crack at saves if Luke Gregerson is booted from the ninth inning, but Harris sure is a fine speculative grab, especially if you need help with your pitching ratios.

The Arizona Diamondbacks have RPs Josh Collmenter, David Hernandez, J.J. Putz, Addison Reed, Joe Thatcher and Brad Ziegler appear to be locks for bullpen jobs, which might mean RP Will Harris is the odd man out. He has options remaining. RP Randall Delgado does not have options remaining, and that might mean Harris loses out in a numbers game.

The Arizona Diamondbacks placed RP J.J. Putz (elbow) on the 15-day disabled list with a right elbow strain Wednesday, May 8, and recalled RP Will Harris from Triple-A Reno in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: The Snakes indicated earlier in the day that Heath Bell would take over the closing duties with Putz sidelined. Bell should immediately be snatched up in all formats, but now we know he'll have at least two weeks' worth of save opportunities. Despite Bell's atrocious season with the Miami Marlins last year, he's pitched well of late and has 19 K's to only three walks on the season.
David Hernandez will continue to set up in the eighth inning, but he might become a long-term factor in the ninth if Putz is out for an extended period. The fact that Hernandez was 0-for-3 in save chances (two in the eighth inning) this year might be the reason Kirk Gibson is going with Bell over him, at least for the time being. Bell's experience in the closer role gives him the edge, also.
