Frequent reader, Mike, alerted me that Rafael Soriano is experiencing pain in his throwing arm. This may be nothing, but it could very well be something. Peter Moylan is the backup to Soriano and should be picked up if you have room on your team. Moylan wasn’t going to close last because he had performed a bris two nights in a row, Manny Acosta was going to close. However, Moylan is the backup and man to get the saves if Soriano goes down.

    Totally agree, that’s why I felt it was imperative to get the post up quickly. Soriano + arm injury = Moylan saves.

    Really? Moylan? Rotowire has Acosta ahead of Moylan on the depth chart. Sure, I like Moylan more – but I don’t have room for both him and Acosta on my roster.

    Acosta may get a save or two if Moylan’s overused but Moylan is the setup man and default closer in times of trouble. Unless Moylan screws the pooch with his opportunity.

    It’s been a very sucky year for me so far, but having Soriano DL’d would be the icing on the cake. I moved him up in nearly all my leagues, and now it looks I’m going to eat it. At any rate, thanks for the Moylan suggestion. I’ve taken advantage of that in a couple of leagues where I’ve got room to handcuff the two of them.

    What about this Rowland-Smith guy?
