Notes 
 Workman is another guy who seems like a safe bet as an RP 2, but let's not totally ignore Matt Barnes.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
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
 Workman was never the guy for the Red Sox . . . until one day he just was. When he finally locked down the closer's role, he was fantastic, striking out batters at will and pitching to a 1.88 ERA. His WHIP hovered near 1.00 despite the fact that he walked more than 5.5 batters per nine innings, a feat which he's unlikely to duplicate. In short, while Workman will close for the Red Sox, he'll need to improve his control in order to hold the job for the whole year.
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.
