The Philadelphia Phillies have placed closer Jose Contreras on the 15-day DL with a right flexor strain. There is no timetable for Contreras’ return.

With Brad Lidge and now Contreras out with injuries, the Phillies will go with Ryan Madson as their closer. Madson has a 1.00 ERA and has K'd 10/9 in nine innings of work in 2011. He saved games for the Phillies on both Friday night and Saturday night.

He is a must pickup in all fantasy formats. However, don’t be surprised if Madson blows a couple of saves every now and again. He has struggled in the role in the past.
