Kerry Wood placed on disabled list; Chris Perez closing

The wise fantasy owner or those in dire need of saves might have already stashed Chris Perez. The rumors have been heavy that Kerry Wood will be traded at some point. Wood was placed on the disabled list with a blister, so Perez will close for now. Wood might still be traded and Perez could close for the rest of the season.

Perez has a 2.55 ERA, but his BB/9 is 4.72 and fly ball rate is 48.4 percent. Still, saves are very difficult to find and Perez will get the crack at them for now. Perez issued a walk in one inning with a strikeout to pick up his eighth save. If Perez is available, pick him up.
