Fantasy Baseball: September Call Up-Pitchers

I posted an article on some pitching prospects who could help your fantasy team, especially in keeper leagues, over at SB Nation's fantasy page. Head on over and have a look.

Here is an excerpt:

Craig Kimbrel, ATL-the Braves closer of the future will be called back up on September 7th. There is a good chance Kimbrel will be closing in 2011, but some believe current setup man Johnny Venters will be the closer. Kimbrel was up with the Braves earlier this season, pitching 9.1 innings, striking out 17 and walking 11. But, in AAA, he has saved 22 games, striking out 78 and walking 34 in 52.2 innings.

Reds pitching prospect Aroldis Chapman pitched the 8th inning last night and struck out 1 batter. He could be their closer of the future.
