Go get FrasorPosted by Derek Carty at 3:17pm
Blue Jays closer Scott Downs limped off the field last night, and while x-rays were negative, MLB.com's Jordan Bastian says that "there is a realistic chance Downs will wind up on the disabled list." You know what that means, fantasy nation. Go chase down Jason Frasor on your league's waiver wire!
There's a chance former closer B.J. Ryan would be the choice if Downs were to miss time, but I'd put my money on Frasor. Better skills, better surface numbers, used in much higher leverage situations (1.42 gmLI compared to 0.85 for Ryan). In the interest of full disclosure, I snatched him up in the KFFL Expert League I'm playing in with fellow THT writer Eriq Gardner.
Derek Carty, 23, has also been published by NBC's Rotoworld, Sports Illustrated, FOX Sports, and USA Today. This season, he'll be contributing to FanDuel and will be linking to all of his work at DerekCarty.com. In his three years competing in expert leagues, he has won 2 titles with 4 top three finishes, including a LABR NL title in 2009, making him the youngest person to ever win a major expert league title. Derek is a proud graduate of the MLB Scouting Bureau's Scout Development Program and is a firm believer in the importance of combining stats and scouting. He welcomes questions via e-mail, Facebook, or Twitter.
