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
Doolittle doesn't have a tight grasp on the closer's gig, but people seem to be overreacting slightly about him not getting the first crack at saves.
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
Doolittle should likely close for the Nationals again in 2020, though Daniel Hudson's emergence in the late- and post-season last year could throw a wrench in Davey Martinez's plans. More concerning is Doolittle's dip in performance, as his ERA and WHIP were by far the worst of his career. A free agent next year, Doolittle's job security should be minimal, so don't target him as a closer in your fantasy drafts.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
  Doolittle came on strong during the playoffs and we've seen him dominate before but the full picture of his 2019 season was one of mediocrity. Should he return to that rate, he may be the first closer to lose his job with Daniel Hudson closely lurking behind.
