What are people thinking about his struggles? Back issue that will linger all year? Cause him to get blown up early on?
I drafted him in the 11th round, after all the Tier 1 closers were gone because I thought his strange delivery would perplex AL hitters for at least the first half of the season, and he would be throwing heat. Both factors combining to create a pretty high K rate and saves would thus follow.
Now I'm reading more and more about these back problems and that he didn't even touch 90 mph today.
Anyone concerned here?

I am concerned, but you have to figure you're going to lose 50% of the saves you draft anyway, so the sooner it happens the better. Sorry, that's little consolation. Unfortunately, I'm sure his backups are already owned, but if they're not, I'd own both -- Shields and Arredondo.

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.
