Nationals manager Davey Johnson indicated Monday that he is considering using a closer-by-committee moving forward.
Johnson has stood behind Henry Rodriguez throughout his recent struggles, but he’s on the verge of making a change after pulling him from a save opportunity Monday night against the Phillies. “I’m going to sleep on it, but I’m looking at other alternatives,” said Johnson. We still think Rodriguez will get some chances, but Craig Stammen, Sean Burnett and Tyler Clippard will also be thrown into the mix. It’s not an ideal situation for fantasy owners.
