Fantasy baseball closer stock watch: Seattle not saving the best for last

If Seattle's Kendall Graveman continues to get important outs in the seventh inning of games, your fantasy baseball fortunes can only benefit. AP

Seattle Mariners manager Scott Servais went with his best relief pitcher to try and escape the seventh inning against the mighty Los Angeles Dodgers on Monday night. He then stuck with him for the eighth inning. Now, this pitcher was not his nominal closer, Rafael Montero (who happens to appear on ESPN Fantasy's most-dropped RP list). No, it was Kendall Graveman, who appears among the most-added relievers. Thus, some fantasy baseball managers could wonder if they were making a mistake, assuming their main goal is to accrue saves.
