Closer Watch

Red Sox – With Andrew Bailey's trip to the DL, Joel Hanrahan just got a whole pile of job security. Fantasy owners in deeper leagues may want to look into securing the services of Junichi Tazawa or Koji Uehara in case Hanrahan struggles or is reinjured – after all, he just got back from a hamstring injury not a week ago.

Royals – Greg Holland blew the save Monday, giving up four hits and (fortunately) just one run. Unfortunately for Kelvin Herrera's prospects, he ended up with the loss, giving up a solo home run to Jordan Danks of the White Sox in his second inning of work. Holland's been otherwise terrific after recovering from a tough start, so don't expect this outing to prompt a change.

Recommended Pickup
Dee Gordon, SS, LAD – We recommended Gordon back on April 19, but it took the Dodgers 'til Saturday to bring him up. After hitting .314 in the minors this year, he's off to a big-time start in his first two games back with the Dodgers, going 3-for-7 with a triple, two walks, three steals and two runs. Dee stole 32 bases for the Dodgers last year despite playing in just 84 games and hitting .228, so he's got some of the most impactful speed this side of Billy Hamilton. With Hanley Ramirez and Mark Ellis sidelined, and Luis Cruz and Justin Sellers patently awful with the bat, Gordon's got a chance to cement his place in the lineup.

Other Recent Recommendations: Marcell Ozuna, Ryan Raburn, Matt Joyce, Delmon Young, Yuniesky Betancourt
