THE SEARCH for closers has been fruitful this season for fantasy owners willing to take a chance on the waiver wire. While established stoppers such as Francisco Cordero and Brad Lidge have faltered, others have emerged from obscurity. Here are a few not-so-obvious sources of saves.
Others to Watch
If MacDougal doesn't take the job in Kansas City, keep an eye on former Angel Joel Peralta, who has been effective in his first season with the Royals.... San Francisco's Armando Benitez isn't blowing hitters away. He has just seven strikeouts in 10 1/3 innings and has two blown saves in five chances. Watch Jeremy Accardo and Brian Wilson.... Todd Coffey of the Reds has given up earned runs in only three of his 24 outings this season.
