Pre-Closing Time: Sherrill to DL, Johnson is the add

George Sherrill and his inflamed shoulder hit the DL Tuesday, which makes Jim Johnson a person of interest in fantasy leagues. Johnson's a pitch-to-contact guy who's fared far better in 2008 than the peripherals suggest, but he's also been the team's regular eighth-inning option all year and that should lead to Dave Trembley giving him first crack at the closing gig.

Save-chaser? Try Johnson. We'll discuss more in Closing Time, proper.

In other news, Ian Kinsler (hernia) is going to put off surgery with the hope of playing again this year, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. Don't drop him just yet, friends.
