2 years agoA’s manager Bob Melvin lists Liam Hendriks and Daniel Coulombe as relievers who could move into more prominent roles now that Sean Doolittle and Ryan Madson have been traded. Santiago Casilla has the closer role on lock down, but the A’s rebuilding plan likely means Casilla will be shopped in advance of the trade deadline. One of Hendriks, Coulombe, veteran John Axford or newcomer Blake Treinen will likely take over the ninth inning duties if/when Casilla is dealt. Hendriks has an ugly 5.26 ERA on the year but a 3.33 FIP and a very nice 11.95 K/9, making him an intriguing add should he end up with the ninth inning role. Coulombe on the other hand has a 2.81 ERA and a 1.09 WHIP, but his 4.11 FIP leaves something to be desired, as does his pedestrian 7.03 K/9. Should anyone take over the ninth inning role permanently they would be worth an add in deep mixed and AL-only leagues. More than likely, manager Bob Melvin will go with a committee, making this a bullpen to stay away from in the second half.--Andy Patton - RotoBaller
