|Rex Brothers not giving up many runs|
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(5/7/13) Rockies reliever Rex Brothers has been stellar out of the Colorado bullpen this season. Through 16 appearances, Brothers has a 0.63 ERA and 17 strikeouts in 14 1/3 innings.
Brothers has allowed only one run and heads into Tuesday's game against the Yankees having tossed 11 straight scoreless innings. Brothers is also 1-0 with four holds. His only glaring weaknesss thus far has been his seven walks.
|Rex Brothers a leading closer-in-waiting|
|by Al Melchior | Data Analyst|
(4/17/13) The early season has gone smoothly for Rockies closer Rafael Betancourt, but he is a strong candidate to be one of this season's closer casualties, and setup man Rex Brothers stands to benefit.
Betancourt is in the final season of his four-year deal, and even if the Rockies don't deal him, his declining strikeout rate and penchant for allowing flyballs could lead to an extended slump and an eventual demotion.
Brothers is currently owned in only five percent of the leagues on CBSSports.com, but with owners always on the lookout for pitchers with potential save opportunities, he should be on more Fantasy rosters.
With a 1.23 ERA and eight strikeouts in seven innings, owners may start to take notice of Brothers, so beat the rush and stash him now in deeper leagues.
|Brothers learns to relax|
|(2/14/13) Rockies reliever Rex Brothers told the Denver Post on Thursday that his strong finish in 2012 -- a 1.52 ERA over his final 23 innings -- had a reason behind it: he started using his changeup more and practiced some relaxation techniques. "When I was on the mound, my eyes looked like I was falling asleep. It was just part of learning not to be so tense," Brothers said. "I realized I can still be effective without trying to throw the ball by everyone."
|Rex Brothers' mid-to-upper 90s fastball induces plenty of swings-and-misses, so in time, he could be the Rockies' closer. For the time being, though, that honor belongs to Rafael Betancourt, so Fantasy owners should look to Brothers to fill a setup or middle relief role. In that capacity, he can still provide strikeouts, holds, and possibly a low ERA, but his tendency to allow too many walks will put his WHIP at risk. Though Brothers' high K-rate makes him a tempting choice on draft day, he is a solid option -- but not an elite one -- for owners in leagues that use setup men and middle relievers.
