Braves | Grilled Cheese getting it done

Wed, 08 Apr 2015 21:58:58 -0700

Jason Grilli worked a 1-2-3 ninth inning Wednesday, April 8, against the Miami Marlins for his second save of the season in as many chances.

Fantasy Tip: Grilli was thrust into the closer’s role when Craig Kimbrel was dealt to San Diego right before the season opener. So far, so good for fantasy owners in seasonal formats.

Braves | Jason Grilli to be primary ATL closer

Mon, 06 Apr 2015 10:41:01 -0700

Atlanta Braves RP Jason Grilli will serve as the team's primary closer, according to manager Fredi Gonzalez.

Fantasy Tip: Grilli has closing experience; he saved 33 games back in 2013 with the Pittsburgh Pirates and 12 saves last year between the Bucs and Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. He should be immediately scooped up off your league's waiver wire if he's still available. Jim Johnson is next in line if Grilli falters.

Braves | Two possible closers in ATL

Mon, 06 Apr 2015 08:13:55 -0700

Atlanta Braves RPs Jim Johnson and Jason Grilli could close games, according to general manager John Hart. Hart also said Juan Jaime could close games eventually as well.

Fantasy Tip: It sounds like a committee is brewing up, and Johnson and Grilli should both be owned in traditional leagues. Both have had success, both have had recent flameouts.

Braves | Jason Grilli likely to be closer

Sun, 05 Apr 2015 16:09:56 -0700

Atlanta Braves RP Jason Grilli is likely to be named the new closer after RP Craig Kimbrel was traded to the San Diego Padres Sunday, April 5.

Fantasy Tip: Grilli should be picked up in all season-long leagues and should begin the 2015 MLB season as a cheap daily option on FantasyScore. Grilli has 50 career saves, with a career single-season high of 33 coming in 2013 with the Pittsburgh Pirates. There's unlikely to be many save opportunities in Atlanta this season, but Grilli is likely the best source available on your waiver wire.
