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
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
 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
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.
