In that event — that Kirby Yates is also dealt — I'd guess Craig Stammen would be next in line. Stammen has 14 holds and a 2.91 ERA. Phil Maton could be an option otherwise.

It'll be a popular move to add Kirby Yates in fantasy leagues following Brad Hand's trade, and rightfully so — Yates is the No. 34 reliever on the Player Rater despite just two saves — but don't forget the possibility that HE, too, could be traded into a setup role elsewhere.
