BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep Leagues.

ANALYSIS: Ernesto Frieri has had a rough stretch, with 2 losses and 3 blown saves since 7/19. He's also given up a ridiculous 7 ER in his last 2 2/3 IP. Earlier today manage Mike Scioscia said that he could use a closer-by-committee going forward, and "play the matchups". It'll be interesting to see what happens here, but Dane De La Rosa could potentially vulture some saves. He has solid numbers this year, with a 3.93 ERA / 1.21 WHIP and 46 K in 50 1/2 IP - but he also gave up 3 ER yesterday. If Scioscia really does decide to give Frieri a break from the closer's role, Michael Kohn could be another option - he's rocking a 2.76 ERA / 1.01 WHIP with 34 K in 32 2/3 IP. If you're looking for saves, or are a Frieri owner, De La Rosa can be added as an insurance policy - he would probably get the first opportunity.
