Notes 
 Morrow is working his way back from an elbow injury that should cost him the first month of the season. He was very good last season and will earn $9 million this year, so it's certainly possible he regains the closer job even if Pedro Strop is handling it well in his absence. He's a smart DL stash.
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
The Marlins likely won't win 70 games, but even so, there will be saves to be found on the roster and Steckenrider is the early favorite to get the job done. How long the role stays his is anyone's guess, but saves are saves so add him late if you are desperate.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 It sounds as though Morrow is going to miss the start of the season. That could very well turn into multiple months as we've seen with "minor" pitching injuries many times before. It is a dangerous game to draft based on injury optimism, even if the closer does have considerable upside.
