Danny Farquhar (RP, SEA) - Waiver Wire Pickups

Tyler Petagine - RotoBaller

BALLER MOVE: Add Immediately

ANALYSIS: Tom Wilhemsen has been removed from the closer role for the second time, and now demoted to AAA.  Danny Farquhar has been handed the the last two save opportunities, and has converted them. There are no guarantees that he'll run away with the job, but it appears it is his for the taking. In case struggles arise, Oliver Perez and Yoervis Medina figure to be his primary sources of competition. Keeper-league owners should also take notice, as Farquhar could turn into a high-end option by season's end. In his last 9 innings pitched (5 outings), he has recorded 14 strikeouts, while surrendering only one hit.
