The trade deadline is fast approaching and it’s about time to see if you need to trade or pick up some closers to not left depleted after.
1. David Robertson, PHI
He’s in a good spot to be come a closer again.
2. Reyes Moronta, SFG
He’s likely the closer if San Francisco sell as expected.
3. Mark Melancon, SFG
He might be the closer instead of Moronta based on his contract.
4. Jose LeClerc, TEX
He might finally get his old job back if Shawn Kelley is traded, or if Kelley implodes.
5. Scott Oberg, COL
Wade Davis will almost certainly lose his closing job soon.
6. Aaron Bummer, CWS
He’s the best reliever in Chicago’s bullpen. He should get closing duties when Colome is either traded or implodes.
7. Michael Lorenzen, CIN
He’a already getting save opportunities and is better than Raisel Iglesias.
1. Taylor Rogers, MIN
He’a likely getting replaced at closer after Minnesota acquire someone more proven.
2. Shane Greene, DET
He’s getting traded and will no longer be a closer.
3. Alex Colome. CWS
Either a trade or his peripherals will cost him his closing duties.
