Notes 
 Although you may expect Herrera to be the closer battle in Chicago, some reports are suggesting that Colome has the upper-hand in the competition. This will be one to watch in spring training to see how it plays out. If Colome gets the job, he would be a top 25 closer.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Bradley looked like the overwhelming favorite to close in the desert, but the situation became considerably cloudier when the Diamondbacks signed Greg Holland in January. Manager Torey Lovullo now expects to have "a nice little competition" for the job. Bradley's ERA ballooned to 3.64 last season, but his xFIP and SIERA suggest he was pretty much the same pitcher as he was in 2017. He just stranded fewer baserunners and surrendered more home runs. Although unlikely to be nearly as dominant as he was in 2017, he should certainly be better than Holland.
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
 Colome is reportedly the favorite to see most of the saves chances, but Kelvin Herrera and Nate Jones could also factor into the ninth inning at times. Colome isn't quite the dominant pitcher he appeared to be back in 2016, but he got his strikeout rate back over a batter per inning last season and he has tended to slightly outperform his peripherals. Perhaps most importantly, he's shown he can handle the ninth inning. It's not a lock that he'll run away with the job or hold it all season, but he could be a sneaky source of saves with serviceable ratios.
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
Bradley isn't a 90 strikeout guy, nor should we expect an ERA south of 2.00, but he is the heavy favorite to get saves in Arizona, which certainly counts for something. Granted, they won't win 80 games, but even 35 saves is plenty to warrant a late-round pick.
