Player Notes
Despite giving up a homer to Chris Carter, Eric O'Flaherty finally recorded his first career save Wednesday against the Astros.

Advice: Fortunately, O'Flaherty was able to erase Robbie Grossman on a double-play ball before the homer, since a two-run shot would have tied the game at 5. After that, O'Flaherty got Dexter Fowler to line out to end it. The outing certainly wasn't quite what the A's were hoping for when they made the surprising decision to have O'Flaherty replace the injured Sean Doolittle. However, since he got the job done, he'll likely continue to close.

After warming up to come in for the save, Eric O'Flaherty ended up finishing an 8-2 game against the Astros on Monday.

Advice: It was 3-2 until the A's racked up five runs in the top of the ninth, extending O'Flaherty's saveless streak for at least one day. He's expected to be Oakland's fill-in closer for now, even though he's never saved a game in 388 appearances. In tonight's game, he gave up a double and a walk with one out before inducing a double-play ball to end the contest.

Wed, Aug 27 Rotoworld
Eric O'Flaherty is expected to serve as the A's closer while Sean Doolittle (intercostal) is sidelined.

Advice: That will allow Ryan Cook and Luke Gregerson to remain in their current setup roles -- where they have both excelled. Doolittle was placed on the disabled list Sunday with an intercostal strain and could be out for close to three weeks. O'Flaherty, who has a 1.35 ERA and 0.83 WHIP in 13 1/3 innings since returning in July from Tommy John surgery, obviously needs to be scooped up in all standard fantasy leagues.
