Notes 
 Some are under the impression that Miller was signed to close in St. Louis, but the Cardinals have made it clear that Miller will be a multi-inning middle of the game type of beast like we saw in his Cleveland days. Rather, Jordan Hicks or potentially even Carlos Martinez will close. Regardless, Miller should be able to pile up the Ks and keep his ratios down enough to warrant a late-round pick.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
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
 The Cardinals acquired Miller this offseason, but they appear unlikely to use him exclusively in the ninth inning. Still, Miller is the definition of the kind of dominant reliever who belongs on fantasy rosters in many leagues even if he isn't closing.
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.
