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
The Rangers moved on from Leclerc once last year, and it doesn't seem like they'll hesitate to do it again. Hello, Demarcus Evans.
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
The Rangers signed Leclerc to be their closer but he just absolutely refused to hold down the job in 2019. Bouts of ineffectiveness were followed by dominant stretches in mop-up duty, which were again followed by failures in the ninth inning. Above everything else, Leclerc has to again get his walks below four per nine innings as he did in 2018. Absent that, even though he'll begin the year as the Rangers' closer, he'll unlikely end it that way.
