Oakland Athletics RP Tyler Clippard has been filling in as the closer while RP Sean Doolittle (shoulder) has been sidelined. There haven't been many save chances, as Clippard is 0-2 with a 2.61 ERA in 10 games with two saves in three chances.
Fantasy Tip: When Doolittle returns, Clippard is likely to return to a setup role, so fantasy owners will want to start preparing for that. Doolittle is making progress and could return in the next couple of weeks.

Oakland Athletics RP Tyler Clippard nailed down his first save of the season Monday, April 20.
Fantasy Tip: Clippard has been pretty shaky to begin the season with five walks in as many innings. He has limited the damage with one earned run, but his closer seat could be warming. Dan Otero could be someone to target for a speculative pickup in deeper leagues.
