Mark Melancon (RP, PIT) - Waiver Wire Pickups

Uncle Leo - RotoBaller

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues

ANALYSIS: Jason Grilli has be struggling this year, and hit the DL today after blowing a couple of saves. If you're looking for closers off the waiver wire, Mark Melancon may still be available in your league as he will be filling in as the Pirates closer and can be added to the list of short-term saves sleepers for fantasy baseball.  Melancon has been pitching extremely well this year, and was also excellent last year as both a setup man and as the closer when Grilli was injured. For now, he will just be a short term option and a fill-in, but if he is pitching very well or if Grilli's injury is worse than expected, he could have significant fantasy value the rest of the season. If you need saves, and Melancon is still available in your league, grab him off the waiver wire asap.
