Bullpens: Top 10 'non-save' RP options
Of course, for those in dynasty formats, this news only confirms that Rivera will not be helping fantasy owners in 2014, so while one should always aim to win now, it's reasonable to seek out others in longer-term formats.

It's tough to argue the case against Robertson, an elite strikeout reliever certainly capable of moving his act to the ninth inning when given the chance. This transition might have occurred last May when Rivera was hurt, but Robertson was sputtering a bit with health and performance, and the experienced Rafael Soriano got the job done in the role.
