Houston Astros RPs Luke Gregerson, Chad Qualls and Pat Neshek will all be competing for the closer's job in spring training. Between all three relievers, they have only 95 career saves, with Qualls having 70 of them in 25 combined seasons.
Fantasy Tip: While Qualls has the most experience and most career saves, and he may start out the year as Houston's ninth-inning stopper, if you're drafting a Houston reliever for saves and upside, it should be Gregerson.

Oakland Athletics RP Jim Johnson has thrown six scoreless innings in his recent outings, and it has manager Bob Melvin once again considering him for the ninth-inning role. "It has certainly elevated the potential for him to close. … He's pitching really well," Melvin said. Melvin will continue to go with a bullpen-by-committee approach, however. One scout is surprised Johnson isn't back in there already, especially because of the way RPs Luke Gregerson and Sean Doolittle have struggled in the role. The scout is also very impressed with Johnson's sinker of late.
Fantasy Tip: Melvin could go back to Johnson any day now. If Johnson's still out there on your waiver wire, grab him now at a cheap cost. Once he's secured the role again, he'll cost you a pretty penny.
