Notes 
 Reports were suggesting that Vizcaino was in a closer battle with A.J. Minter, but now that Minter is banged up, it seems as though Vizcaino will open the season as the closer for a playoff contending team. That should make him worthwhile to draft, but that doesn't exactly mean he will hang onto the job for long if he slips up.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Although you may expect Herrera to be the closer battle in Chicago, some reports are suggesting that Colome has the upper-hand in the competition. This will be one to watch in spring training to see how it plays out. If Colome gets the job, he would be a top 25 closer.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 Braves manager Brian Snitker recently suggested that the team could play matchups in the eighth and ninth innings, which means that both the right-handed Vizcaino and left-handed A.J. Minter could see plenty of save opportunities in 2019. Most major league hitters are right-handed, so Vizcaino is the favorite to again lead Atlanta in saves when all is said and done. His walk rate is higher than you'd like, but he's outperformed his peripherals for most of his career, so it wouldn't be shocking if he managed another sub-3.00 ERA.
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
Colome is reportedly the favorite to see most of the saves chances, but Kelvin Herrera and Nate Jones could also factor into the ninth inning at times. Colome isn't quite the dominant pitcher he appeared to be back in 2016, but he got his strikeout rate back over a batter per inning last season and he has tended to slightly outperform his peripherals. Perhaps most importantly, he's shown he can handle the ninth inning. It's not a lock that he'll run away with the job or hold it all season, but he could be a sneaky source of saves with serviceable ratios.
