Now that the Seattle Mariners signed RP Fernando Rodney to be their closer, the chances of Baltimore Orioles RP Tommy Hunter serving as the closer to start the year have gone way up. The Orioles were one of the finalists to land Rodney for their bullpen. Hunter would like the chance to close if he's not a candidate for the starting rotation. Manager Buck Showalter has said RPs Darren O'Day and Ryan Webb won't be in line to pitch in the ninth on a regular basis. Baltimore continues to keep tabs on free-agent RPs Joel Hanrahan (Red Sox) and Andrew Bailey (Red Sox), however.

Boston Red Sox RP Andrew Bailey (shoulder) will undergo season-ending surgery on his right shoulder Wednesday, July 24, to fix a torn capsule, damage to his labrum and a strain of one of the muscles of his rotator cuff. The estimated recovery time is 12 months.
Fantasy Tip: Bailey's injury woes continue to affect his fantasy value. Koji Uehara doesn't really have anyone challenging him for save chances anytime soon, unless the BoSox go out and acquire another bullpen contributor before the trade deadline. Junichi Tazawa and Matt Thornton become even more important in setup roles now.
