Eric O'Flaherty first choice to close for A's
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

With Sean Doolittle set to go on the disabled list, Eric O'Flaherty will be the first choice to close games for the Athletics, according to the San Francisco Chronicle on Sunday. The move was made to keep Luke Gregerson and Ryan Cook in their set-up roles, per the paper.

O'Flaherty owns a 1.35 ERA and a 0.83 WHIP over 13 1/3 innings of relief this season.

Ranking the Athletics relievers
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Notice who got the save for the Athletics Monday? Nope, it wasn't Jim Johnson. He tried his darndest but couldn't record even an out in his second save opportunity since returning to the closer role. And Luke Gregerson wasn't the one to bail him out even though he hadn't pitched since Saturday.

No, Sean Doolittle got the save for the Athletics Monday, and given how easily he wiggled out of that jam, striking out two in a perfect inning of work, he could soon be in a position to do much for Fantasy owners.

While neither Johnson nor Gregerson are ideally suited for the role as pitch-to-contact types, Doolittle has electric, swing-and-miss stuff, piling up 26 strikeouts in his 20 innings this season. He also has yet to issue a single walk. And because the penny-pinching Athletics already signed him to a five-year deal just a few weeks ago, they won't have to worry about him taking a big saves total to the arbitration table. If he didn't throw left-handed, it would make too much sense.

If I'm ranking the Athletics relievers for the short-term, I go Johnson, Gregerson, Doolittle, but I have a hunch Doolittle comes away with the job eventually.

Both Athletics relievers worth stashing
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

With the way the Athletics have used him lately, having him pitch the eighth inning or earlier in each of his last six appearances, you'd think Luke Gregerson's stint as a closer was over and done.

But before Jim Johnson even officially stepped back into the role, he opened the door for Gregerson to reclaim it, allowing four unearned runs on two hits and two walks in two-thirds of an inning Tuesday.

Granted, it was a non-save situation -- the Athletics were trailing by one run when Johnson entered -- but it was still the ninth inning of a tight game. Johnson couldn't afford to let anybody score, and unearned or not, he did -- four times over.

Gregerson blew a couple saves in his stint as the closer, but he has been far and away the more effective reliever this season, compiling a 2.55 ERA and 0.96 WHIP in 17 appearances. Better hold on to both him and Johnson while the Athletics continue to sort out the situation.
