  1. Yahoo didn’t add him until today, actually. So he’s on waivers until the 28th, instead of the 27th.

  3. Jansen (38) and Guerrier (25) had thrown a lot of pitches the night before last nights game. Rubby could indeed turn into the Dodgers 2011 closer at some point, but I wouldn’t count on him getting that role for a while. Management has stated that he is next in line to start if someone goes down. Of course once he stops starting for a while it will take some time to get stretched out again. Fantasy wise, I’d be more interested in him in a “keeper” league (as a starter) than in a short term league. He will likely replace Kuroda or Garland in the rotation next year.

  4. Have Rubby in my NL only Dynasty. Wondering if I should bring him up from my minors. If he keeps his rookie eligibility for next year, I can wait and avoid starting his salary clock. Think he stays up long and well enough to activate him.

  5. Is this situation any different then the one in Texas last year?

    Neftali Feliz was forced into the closer roll due to lack of dominant bullpen depth? Feliz is still a long term prospect as a starting pitcher, but he continues to be the go-to guy in the closer roll because Texas as a surplus of starting pitchers.

    The situation in L.A. seems to be very similar. There’s no harm in putting your most dominating arm in the closer role, even if his long term potential is as a starter.

    I don’t think youth or experience are going to come into play here. What’s going to come into play is the fact that no Dodgers reliever can get it done right now. I’ve picked up EVERY Dodgers reliever on my Fantasy team who has been given a change to save games. So far, EVERY one has FAILED me with a blown save.

    I see Rubby getting this job sooner then later, simply because NOBODY else can get it done…..not even Broxton himself (when he returns), I think the Dodgers are looking for their year long solution NOW, and they know that Broxton is not the answer.

  6. do you have to decide right now? why not wait and see if he’s the closer or not. If he’s not closing seems silly to bring him up prematurely as a setup guy.

  7. So, how do Rubby’s prospects compare with those of my current stockpile of might-become-a-closer-if-someone-gets-traded-or-breaks-down types, Evan Meek, David Hernandez and Jonny Venters?

  8. I don’t think it’s wise to completely disregard Guerra, especially since he’s the one who actually got the save last night.

  9. I really hope that Rubby ends up be a starter I picked him up a while ago in ottoneu
