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
Betances is merely a closer in waiting, but besides Josh Hader, the best in the game. He is a sure bet for 90+ Ks, with upside ranging to nearly 130. Likewise, his ratios will be terrific each year and you can even rely on a handful of wins and saves too.
Bobby Sylvester - 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
Betances could work his way into save chances if something happens to Aroldis Chapman. But even if Chapman remains healthy and effective, Betances is worth owning in leagues where non-closing relievers are rostered as a source of elite strikeouts and ratios.
