Player Notes
Tigers manager Brad Ausmus confirmed Saturday that he'll "probably" use Alex Wilson as his closer.

Advice: Wilson notched his first career save on Thursday when he recorded the final five outs of the game and it appears that he's Ausmus' top option for the ninth inning following the trade of Joakim Soria. "I'll probably use Wilson at the back end, maybe (Blaine) Hardy at the back end if there are lefties," Ausmus said. "(Neftali) Feliz and (Bruce) Rondon hopefully can stretch through the seventh and eighth somehow." Wilson boasts a 1.79 ERA on the season, although he's struck out just 33 over 55 1/3 innings. He doesn't have typical closer stuff but obviously needs to be owned in all fantasy leagues.

Alex Wilson got five outs for his first save Thursday in the Tigers' 9-8 win over the Orioles.

Advice: Wilson had just two holds all year, so he was never seen as a setup man in front of Joakim Soria. Nevertheless, he was Brad Ausmus's choice to close tonight. He likely would have started the ninth had everything gone as planned, but after Al Alburquerque allowed two of the first three batters to reach in the eighth, Ausmus decided to go to Wilson right then. Wilson allowed one of the inherited runners to score, but finished the Orioles off from there. He might be the favorite for saves in the Tigers pen, at least until he blows one.
