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
As of July 11th, Kela has not reported to camp. It's unclear if he is dealing with COVID-19 or when he is planning to report, if at all. Kela is an above-average major league reliever and will start the year as the Pittsburgh closer if healthy. But for now, drop him down your draft board a few spots.
Dan Harris - 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
He's probably going to be traded, but he'll give you cheap saves until then.
