Twins | Kevin Jepsen out as closer

Wed, 08 Jun 2016 23:21:10 -0700

Minnesota Twins RP Kevin Jepsen will be removed from the closer role in the "short term," manager Paul Molitor said Wednesday, June 8. Jepsen has been scored upon in five of his past 11 appearances, and he's 2-5 with a 6.17 ERA in 25 appearances on the season. Molitor said RPs Brandon Kintzler and Fernando Abad could see ninth-inning duties.

Fantasy Tip: Abad is having a great year with a 0.87 ERA, a 1.02 WHIP and just over a strikeout per inning. The 30-year-old has no closing experience at this level, and he's a lefty, which could present matchup issues in the ninth. Kintzler has a 2.30 ERA and a 0.96 WHIP, but he doesn't possess the swing-and-miss stuff you'd like in a closer. However, he already has one save, and he might have the edge over the lefty. Whichever way the team goes, it's expected to be short-lived. Glen Perkins (shoulder) appears to be close to a rehab assignment, and he has a clear path back to his job if he doesn't suffer a setback. If he was dropped in your league, grab and stash him. Abad isn't a bad option for ratios, but Kintzler might be the guy for those desperate for saves. However, bad memories of Ryan Franklin ensue. For Jepsen owners, he appears to have run his course of fantasy viability for now. Unless Perkins suffers a setback, Jepsen's value plummets to AL-only depth.

Twins | Trevor May being scaled back

Tue, 24 May 2016 15:11:50 -0700

Minnesota Twins RP Trevor May has been struggling as the setup man, so manager Paul Molitor said he plans to use RPs Brandon Kintzler and Fernando Abad late in games to take some stress off of May.

Fantasy Tip: May was lights out in April and was gaining steam for a shot at saves with Glen Perkins on the DL and Kevin Jepsen shaky in the ninth. However, an absolutely brutal stretch from May 13 up until last night has changed things. May has allowed 10 earned runs and 14 hits in just 3 1/3 innings in that span. Now he'll pitch in less stressful situations. With Perkins nearing a return, it looks like May's window is closing in order to make an impression for long-term closing duties. If you have more pressing needs in deeper leagues, don't be afraid to cut May loose for now.
