Notes 
 Are we fooling ourselves into believing that this is the year that Arizona will finally commit to Bradley? He seems like he's destined for a high-leverage role, regardless of the inning.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Gallegos is a perfect guy to take as your RP 2 late in drafts. The job should be his.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Once Greg Holland opened the door for Bradley to take over as the closer, Bradley tiptoed through the opening. Although he held down the role and put up save totals, it wasn't pretty, as he walked about 4.5 batters per nine innings. That's a dangerous recipe for a closer, particularly when the front office hasn't seemed particularly motivated to turn over the role to him. But, entering 2020, the closer's role is Bradley's, and if he can find his control from 2017-2018, he should have success.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
There's no denying Gallegos' talent, and if he gets the job as the Cardinals' closer, he has the legitimate upside to be a top-five closer if everything goes right. Unfortunately, we're a long way away from there, as the St. Louis bullpen situation is a giant question mark at the moment given Carlos Martinez and Alex Reyes. Draft Gallegos for the ratios and hope for more, but don't yet think you've got a solid closer.
