Notes 
 The White Sox are going to score a lot of runs. The White Sox will probably have a lot of save opportunities. Alex Colomé is not that great. The White Sox will probably trade Alex Colomé. All of these things can be true.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Doolittle doesn't have a tight grasp on the closer's gig, but people seem to be overreacting slightly about him not getting the first crack at saves.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Few expected Colome to hold the closer role for the White Sox all season, but he did, totaling 30 saves in the process. His numbers were solid, though his FIP and xFIP were significantly higher than his ERA. The White Sox have big plans for the season so, if they're in contention, don't be surprised if they make a move for a more established reliever. But, in the meantime, Colome should provide plenty of saves in the first half of the season.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Doolittle should likely close for the Nationals again in 2020, though Daniel Hudson's emergence in the late- and post-season last year could throw a wrench in Davey Martinez's plans. More concerning is Doolittle's dip in performance, as his ERA and WHIP were by far the worst of his career. A free agent next year, Doolittle's job security should be minimal, so don't target him as a closer in your fantasy drafts.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
  Doolittle came on strong during the playoffs and we've seen him dominate before but the full picture of his 2019 season was one of mediocrity. Should he return to that rate, he may be the first closer to lose his job with Daniel Hudson closely lurking behind.
