Took a flyer before deadline and picked up both Ryan Dull & Edubray Ramos but seems neither their respective clubs made deals. Should I move on from these 2 & look to add Hudson or Axford. Need a closer for the home stretch for saves. Your thoughts would be much appreciated. Thanks|

|Jake Barrett and not Hudson is going to close in Arizona and John Axford isn't any closer to the job. Hang on to Edwin Diaz and hope that Steve Cishek blows another save or two this week. (Mike Gianella)|

(brucegilsen from Washington, DC)
|75 percent chance. In 2017? Probably still Vizcaino, since I don't see him getting through waivers to get traded on a waiver deal. (Mike Gianella)|
|2015-02-16 11:00:00 (link to chat)||You mentioned Arizona with regards to a Navarro trade. Would an unproven relief prospect like Kaleb Fleck, Jimmie Sherfy, Jake Barrett, or Enrique Burgos be a fair return?|
(JobaTheHut from Limbo)
|Possibly, yeah. (R.J. Anderson)|
|2014-07-03 19:00:00 (link to chat)||Prospect Closer talk. Arodys Vizcaino. He gonna be that guy in the next year or two?? How bout Jake Barrett with AZ?? And your odds on Foltynewicz being a starter at the end of the day.|
(Kyra Sedgwick from Bacon)
|Ahh clever name.
Arodys is coming, his fate is out of his hands though. The Cubs bullpen has suddenly gotten a few different options in there. Barrett has upside, I think Reed holds on and he's young enough to be there awhile but I think Barrett might be forcing some hands in AZ.
As for Folty, that's a really good question for Craig Goldstein. I think he's got a lot of reliever tendencies but I still leave room for development. (Mauricio Rubio)

(DB from Pittsburgh)
|Jorge Alfaro and Jake Barrett. (Bret Sayre)|
|2013-07-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)||Does Jake Barrett (recently promoted to Double-A and doing well as the closer there) have a chance to close for the Diamondbacks in the future?|
(bkobs from Mass)
|I'm lukewarm on the grooming a closer in the minors thing. Like it or not there is a psychological aspect to the modern closer's role, so it's hard to assess a guy's makeup until you see him in the big leagues. So, clearly he has a path as a reliever and if he continues to shut teams down in AA ... then he'll be a legit prospect in my mind. Then we can talk about him closing later down the road.

No BP Roundtables have mentioned this guy.
