Even if Madson avoids the DL, we have a hard time imagining a scenario where he gets the next save opportunity — so we expect a committee starring Koda Glover and Justin Miller, with Greg Holland also lurking. Sean Doolittle, possibly throwing off a mound on Monday, can’t get back soon enough for the Nats]]> 5270391 Mon, 13 Aug 2018 0:42:01 EDT Closer Monkey <![CDATA[Kelvin Herrera lands on the DL]]> Kelvin Herrera was getting an MRI today, and it turns out he has a right rotator cuff impingement that will send him to the DL. Ryan Madson should get the bulk of the save chances in Herrera’s absence, with Justin Miller, the recently called-up Koda Glover and Greg Holland all behind Madson.

Updated hierarchy: Madson | Miller | Glover]]> 5266899 Wed, 08 Aug 2018 15:49:01 EDT Closer Monkey

Holland was dreadful for the Cardinals before being released Aug. 1, posting a 7.92 ERA and a 22:22 K/BB in 25 innings after signing on as the presumed closer. Expectations should be low until he proves that he's remembered how to pitch, but somewhere in there is the guy who posted six seasons of very good relief work and 186 career saves. There's a least an outside chance that he recaptures that form and becomes a weapon for Washington down the stretch.
