News: O'Flaherty picked up his first save for the A's despite a shaky ninth inning Wednesday in which he gave up two hits and a run to the Astros. Impact: It was O'Flaherty, not Luke Gregerson, who got the save opportunity in the place of the injured Sean Doolittle. The left-hander eventually shut the door after Chris Carter tagged him for a solo homer with two outs in the ninth. O'Flaherty might have made Bob Melvin a little nervous Wednesday, but it looks as though he will act as Oakland's interim closer.(RotoWire, )

News: Manager Bob Melvin hinted that O'Flaherty would be the fill-in closer in lieu of Sean Doolittle landing on the DL with an oblique injury, the San Francisco Chronicle's Susan Slusser reports. Impact: Melvin said he wants to keep guys with regular roles in those roles, meaning that Luke Gregerson and Ryan Cook will probably remain in setup roles. O'Flaherty has a 1.35 ERA in 13.1 innings out of the bullpen this season, and has a 2.79 ERA for his career, so assuming the A's beat writers are correct in assuming O'Flaherty will get the save opportunities, he's a worthwhile add in most formats.(RotoWire, )

News: O'Flaherty will be utilized in back-to-back contests going forward, John Hickey of the Bay Area News Group reports. Impact: After undergoing Tommy John surgery in May of 2013, O'Flaherty made his way back to a major league mound in early July. In 14 appearances since, he's been on point, posting a 1.35 ERA, 0.82 WHIP and 12:3 K:BB in 13.1 innings.(RotoWire, )
