Fantasy Baseball Bullpen Report: August 29
Steve Pimental goes around the league, highlighting bullpens of note and potential closers to add to your fantasy baseball rosters.
Last week, we discussed how Archie Bradley was getting the job done despite allowing runs. This week, he has three straight saves without allowing an earned run. He has a 3.00 ERA and 0.92 WHIP in August, and he certainly looks like he will be a reliable closer the rest of the way.
Raisel Iglesias blew the save Friday and allowed a home run on Monday, but he came back to earn the save Tuesday despite allowing two hits in 1.1 innings. His ERA and WHIP are not impressive, and if he struggles his next time out, I think we could see him split closing duties with Michael Lorenzen .
Ken Giles has not allowed an earned run in three weeks, and while it was discouraging to see Derek Law pick up the save Saturday, Giles came back to earn the save Tuesday. I would still much rather own Giles, but it is certainly possible these two will split closing duties going forward.
