Andrew Bailey has struggled recently, losing the closing role as a result, and the Red Sox would like to ease him back into high-pressure situations to get him right again. "Well, that's a middle-relief role," manager John Farrell said. "Seventh inning is a middle-relief role. There may be some curiousness as to why he was brought into that game. We've got to get him through the spell he's going through, and I thought he took a step in the right direction last night."
Andrew Bailey's struggles this year have caused him to lose his role as the team's closer, as well as losing all of his fantasy value in most leagues (unless you're in a super-deep league that tracks holds). Barring multiple injuries within the Red Sox bullpen, you can consider Bailey a fantasy non-factor moving forward.
