Fantasy Baseball Bullpen Report: September 19
Steve Pimental goes around the league, highlighting bullpens of note and potential closers to add to your fantasy baseball rosters.
Brad Hand , who has been out for the last 10 days with a tired arm, was scheduled to throw a bullpen session Wednesday. He could be back closing games as soon as Thursday, though I wouldn’t be shocked if he needs at least one more bullpen session before he returns for Cleveland. The Indians are just half a game behind Tampa Bay for the second Wild Card spot, so they probably won’t run Hand out there if they don’t think he’s close to 100 percent. Oliver Pérez , who is approximately 100 years old, blew the save on Saturday but picked up the save on Sunday. Righty Adam Cimber got his first career save last Tuesday, and he got the hold on Saturday. You’d have to be pretty desperate to add Perez or Cimber, as Terry Francona will likely continue to mix and match until Hand returns. If you’ve had Brad Hand this long, you should probably just hold on, though it’s tough in September when guys don’t go on the IL and can return any time.
