Fantasy Analysis | 1400014081
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.

Luke Gregerson blows save opportunity Tuesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Athletics pitcher Luke Gregerson couldn't protect a 4-3 lead Tuesday, giving up two earned runs on three hits in the ninth inning of his team's 5-4 loss to the Rangers.

Gregerson (0-1) was gifted a second chance when the Rangers couldn't successfully execute a squeeze bunt, resulting in an out at home plate. However, it ended up not making a difference, as the Rangers would go on to plate two runs against Gregerson. He owns a 3.09 ERA and 7:1 K:BB ratio in 11 2/3 innings.

Luke Gregerson collects third save
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Athletics pitcher Luke Gregerson entered Sunday's game against the Astros in the ninth inning with a three-run advantage. He struck out one and needed just eight pitches, securing his third save of the season in a 4-1 victory.

Gregerson is 3 for 4 in save chances with a 1.69 ERA, a 0.75 WHIP over 5 2/3 innings pitched since earning a role in Oakland's closer-by-committee approach.

A's maintain status quo with closer situation
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Athletics manager Bob Melvin re-iterated that his closer situation remains "status quo," meaning he'll continue his closer-by-committee approach, Comcast SportsNet Bay Area reports.

Jim Johnson started the season as the closer, but lost the job on April 10. Since losing his role as the ninth inning man, he has since allowed just two hits and one walk while striking out five over five scoreless frames.

Since Johnson lost his role, Luke Gregerson is 2 for 3 in save chances with a 1.93 ERA over 4 2/3 innings pitched. Sean Doolittle is 1 for 2 in save opportunities, and has allowed two runs over 3 1/3 innings since April 10.
