J.J. Hoover (RP, CIN) - Waiver Wire Pickups

Uncle Leo - RotoBaller

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deeper Leagues

ANALYSIS: The Reds bullpen is a mess right now, and there is no locked in closer slated to start the season. With Aroldis Chapman's recent injury, there is an opening for someone to step up and grab the closer's role. Jonathan Broxton and Sean Marshall are also dealing with their own injuries, so J.J. Hoover may get the first crack at the job. Hoover owns a pristine career stat line with a 2.63 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 98 Ks in 96 2/3 IP. Manager Bryan Price isn't naming a closer yet, so Hoover is no guarantee for saves, but if you're in a deeper league and are looking for more saves upside feel free to take a flier off the waiver wire and see how the situation plays out.
