Player Notes
Brett Cecil worked a scoreless ninth inning for the save as the Blue Jays won 11-8 over the Red Sox on Tuesday.

Advice: With the way this game had gone, even a three-run lead in the ninth didn't feel safe. Cecil was able to get two quick outs, then allowed a single to Ryan Hanigan. The lefty retired Mookie Betts on a ground out to end the contest. Cecil was recently reinstated as the Blue Jays' closer after Miguel Castro struggled, so he should see an increased amount of save chances going forward. So far this season, Cecil has blown his only save chance and owns a 6.00 ERA with a 7/2 K/BB ratio in six innings.

Brett Cecil is back as the Blue Jays' closer.

Advice: Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said after Monday's game that he would have used Cecil in a save opportunity, so this doesn't come as a big surprise. Miguel Castro has really struggled of late and will now pitch in more lower-leverage situations. Roberto Osuna and Aaron Loup will help set up. Cecil was pulled from the closer role earlier this month and his velocity is still below what we've come to expect, but he needs to be owned in all fantasy leagues as long as the opportunity is there.

Blue Jays manager John Gibbons revealed after Monday's loss to the Red Sox that he would have used Brett Cecil as his closer had an opportunity arisen.

Advice: Miguel Castro has struggled lately, as he's been scored upon in four out of his last five appearances and blown two save chances over that stretch. The 20-year-old took the loss on Monday, retiring just one of the four batters he faced. Cecil has been worse this season with a 7.20 ERA, but it appears that, at the very least, the two might be in a committee at closer at this point. "Ideally, we'll get some defined roles," Gibbons said. "Right now it's really just kind of a crap shoot but we need to settle in and run with it and live with the results, is really the way we need to start approaching it." Needless to say, it's a less than ideal situation for fantasy owners.
