    Should I drop Farnsworth for Aceves?

    Hi, I unfortunately already have Pineda on my DL spot and I see Aceves as a great short term closer but obviously Farnsworth long term, but he's starting injured. Should I drop Farnsworth for Aceves or keep him?

    ( I could also drop Henderson Alvarez and keep 3 closers, but I like his potential)

    • Oh and I had Pineda last year, was good starting out, but fizzled later on. He was on my do not draft list this year, and you don't know how long he will be with tendinitis in his throwing arm. I'd drop him and put Farnsworth on DL unless they come back with something worse than "just a strain" which they possibly could in the next 2 days. Keep posted on that situation.

    • Storen will not stay long on DL. Drop Alvarez and pick up Aceves. The man had 10 wins and didn't start last year, he's good in high pressure situations, and Bailey could possibly be out for the year. The only way Aceves loses as closer is if he gets hurt or seriously screws up. I like Melancon as a nice handcuff that should get you wins as well.
