Rex Brothers – Kantor’s Fantasy Corner
If you’ve been sleeping on the waiver wire, Colorado Rockies closer, Rafael Betancourt, left an extra innings game on Tuesday with an apparent groin issue. He will get an MRI with results that will determine if he can avoid a DL stint. Rex Brothers, although left handed, will get the saves in his absence.
He has been unbelievable so far this season (hasn’t given up a run in a month) and is likely the closer of the future. He picked up his first career save Wednesday night. If you have a roster spot to spare, grab him up. If not, watch Rafael Betancourt and see if he hits the DL. If so, Rex Brothers is a must add.
