Description: Manager Ron Roenicke said Thursday he didn't think RP Takashi Saito's hamstring tightness was serious enough to land him on the disabled list. "I don't think so," said Roenicke. "I'd be very surprised if that happens." SOURCE: Journal Sentinel
Insight: Saito is the handcuff to Brewers' closer John Axford so watch this news carefully if you need saves and the Brewers decide to make a switch at the closer position.

Insight: He will work in middle relief and won't have any mixed league value. When healthy he can produce a low ERA, helping in deep NL-Only leagues.

Description: Nikkon Sports in Japan reports the Brewers are nearing a one-year contract with Saito worth around $3 million.
Insight: Saito had a 2.83 ERA in 56 appearances for the Braves in 2010 and if healthy should do well in a late-inning setup role for Milwaukee. (RapidDraft.com)

Description: Saito notched the save in Sunday's 4-1 win over the New York Yankees.
Insight: Saito tossed a scoreless inning to record his second save of the season in place of Jonathan Papelbon, who got the night off to rest. It appears this will be a trend throughout the season, so it's not a stretch to say Saito could finish with 10 saves. Considering he also provides solid ratios, he is definitely worth a look in all formats. (SportsBuff.com)
