FantasyPros Baseball Podcast: Closer Updates, Who’s Freddy Peralta & Listener Mailbag

May 15, 2018

Welcome to another episode of the FantaysPros Baseball Podcast. The show is hosted by our own Bobby Sylvester (@bobbyfantasypros). He’ll be interviewing featured experts and team correspondents who will provide insight throughout the baseball season.

There are a handful of things to discuss with the latest events around the league and joining us to do so is Jake Ciely of RotoExperts. Roberto Osuna may be out for the long haul (1:24), Keynan Middleton has major elbow issues (21:13), and Hector Neris is on shaky ground (22:52) making the closer landscape a bit fuzzy for all three teams. There were also a pair of intriguing call-ups with Franmil Reyes (13:22) and Freddy Peralta (16:20) that have owners wondering what to expect. Lastly, we’re answering your mailbag questions so listen up to see if your question made it onto the show (18:54).
