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
Robles seems like the guy in Anaheim, but he's not in the tier of relievers where you feel super comfortable about it.
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
The regression never came for Robles last year, as he somehow managed to avoid walks despite struggling with them his entire career. He'll enter the year as the Angels' closer but it's a big gamble to think lightning will strike twice with such a mercurial pitcher. The safer bet is that Robles' walk and home run rates will return to his career levels, making him a closer unlikely to hold his job all year.
