The Marlins have placed closer Matt Lindstrom on the DL and will allow him to rest for four weeks, opening up a lot of save opportunities for his replacements. There are a few candidates, including Leo Nunez, Dan Meyer, Brian Sanches, and Kiko Calero (DL). Leo Nunez seems like the most likely option, although he did struggle last night, which will be in the back of manager Fredi Gonzalez's mind.
Dan Meyer has shown the best skills so far this year (3.13 LIPS ERA), but most have considered Nunez next in line for a while. Either one would likely have the skills to hold down the job for a month, and both have similar gmLI's (1.48 to 1.46, Nunez). Brian Sanches doesn't look like as good a bet as the other two (less talked about and lower 1.33 gmLI), but Kiko Calero could factor in once he returns from the DL if the Marlins can't find a go-to-guy in his absence.
All four should be owned in NL-only leagues for now, Nunez should be owned in all mixed leagues, and Meyer can be owned in medium-to-deep mixed leagues. This is all, of course, subject to change based upon who gets the first ninth inning call.
