News 
 D'backs closer Archie Bradley has won his arbitration case and will make $4.1 million in 2020.
Brendan Tuma - Too Much Tuma
Fri, Feb 21st
Tigers manager Ron Gardenhire said Tuesday that Joe Jimenez will be the team’s closer this season.

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.

Who else will the Tigers turn to?
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
Although Jimenez's numbers weren't pretty in 2019, he actually performed fairly well once the Tigers turned over the closer role to him. He'll never be a top-tier closer, particularly given that Detroit is unlikely to compete, but considering he's under team control for several more seasons, he should be given every chance to hold the job all year.
