Fantasy Baseball Draft: Closer Status for 2015

News: Stammen has an 8.68 ERA and 7:1 K:BB through 9.1 spring innings.
Impact: The ERA is ugly but is fueled by a high BABIP in a small sample size, and Stammen's other numbers don't seem to indicate there's anything wrong with him. He should once again be the jack-of-all-trades in the Nationals' bullpen, but he'll need to turn around last season's decline in his strikeout rate to regain even a little fantasy value.
Rotowire: Jan 15 / 5:39p ET
News: Stammen agreed to a one-year, $2.25 million deal with the Nationals on Thursday, Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports.
Impact: Stammen struggled in 2014 compared to his three previous seasons, but finished with decent numbers (3.84 ERA, 1.27 WHIP). He figures to continue in a middle-relief role for the Nats, with the ability to go multiple innings if needed.
