Rockies still consider pitcher Rex Brothers a closer
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(1/24/15) Despite his struggles to close games in 2014, Rockies general manager Jeff Bridich told reporters Saturday he still considers pitcher Rex Brothers a potential closer, reports The Denver Post.
"You have to learn lessons from struggles," Bridich said.
In 2014, Brothers blew all six of his save opportunities and finished the season with a 5.59 ERA. However, Bridich said the 2014 season was not a typical year for Brothers.
"We're close to seeing the real Rex Brothers," Bridich said.
Report: Rockies, Rex Brothers avoid arbitration
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(1/16/15) The Rockies have avoided arbitration with pitcher Rex Brothers by agreeing to a one-year deal worth $1.4 million, MLB.com reports.
Brothers was eligible for arbitration for the first time this offseason. He posted a 5.59 ERA and 55:39 K:BB ratio in 56 1/3 innings over 74 appearances in 2014.
New Rockies bullpen coach feels he can help Rex Brothers
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(11/10/14) New Rockies bullpen coach Darren Holmes believes he will be able to help reliever Rex Brothers, who has been touted as the closer of the future, bounce back after a rough 2014 season, according to The Denver Post.
Holmes feels he will be able to rely on his experience pitching for Colorado (1993-1997) and impart his wisdom on the hard-throwing lefty.
"When I came to (Colorado), I put a lot of added pressure on myself," Holmes said. "I think that's probably what happened to Brothers. He's got great stuff. You don't (pitch) at Coors Field with a 1.74 (ERA) by mistake. That doesn't just happen. He's got great stuff.
"He's got a great makeup. Something went wrong, and it could be mechanical. It could be that something went wrong mechanically early and he couldn't pull out of it. Maybe it was mental. Maybe he got beat down early."
Who's next in line to close?
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
|(7/8/14) The funny thing about the closer role is that while innumerable relievers are capable of filling it, only 30 can at any one time, giving those 30 disproportionate value in Fantasy. And while in shallower leagues, 30 is more than enough to go around, in standard 12-team formats, it's a shortage. As a result, anticipating the next to enter the role is well worth your while.
Among all middle relievers, I believe Jake McGee, Jeurys Familia, Sergio Romo, Joaquin Benoit, Neil Ramirez, Brad Ziegler, Jason Grilli and Rex Brothers have the best chance of stepping into the closer role by the end of the month. To read up on them and their chances, check out my latest post to the Fantasy Baseball Today blog.

|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(6/14/14) Rockies pitcher Rex Brothers recorded three strikeouts in a scoreless eighth inning Saturday to earn a win in his team's 5-4 victory over the Giants.
Not only did Brothers (3-4) notch three strikeouts in the inning, he needed just three pitches for each of his strikeouts, finishing the perfect inning with just nine pitches to his credit. He owns a 4.85 ERA and 30:18 K:BB ratio in 29 2/3 innings.
