Edward Mujica (RP, OAK) - Waiver Wire Pickups


BALLER MOVE: Add in All Saves Leagues

OWNED IN: 3% of Fleaflicker Leagues

ANALYSIS: The Oakland Athletics just traded current closer Tyler Clippard to the New York Mets. This opens the question of who will be the next closer for Oakland? Based on current game usage, the answer would seem to be Edward Mujica. Although his numbers haven't been phenomenal, he has been deployed as the setup man in recent games and grabbing some holds in the process.

You can see our full MLB closers & saves depth charts updated here, and follow further updates and waiver wire pickups/stashes as we continue through the trade deadline.

Oakland may very well trade Mujica as well, but Mujica seems to be the likely candidate to take over as the closer, at least in the near term. Fernando Rodriguez has pitched well, and may eventually grab some saves, but he most likely won't get the first crack at the job.

Drew Pomeranz and Eric O'Flaherty are other names that have been discussed as potential options, but both are lefties and Pomeranz has been working out of the rotation recently. If you are looking for a boost in saves, grab Mujica off the waiver wire and see how this all plays out.
