Notes 
 Was Kimbrel's down year due to the long layoff from being unsigned, or was it the beginning of the end for one of the game's most dominant closers?
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
The White Sox are going to score a lot of runs. The White Sox will probably have a lot of save opportunities. Alex Colomé is not that great. The White Sox will probably trade Alex Colomé. All of these things can be true.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Kimbrel waited to sign until months into the season, and the results weren't pretty. He battled injury and was entirely ineffective, pitching to an 8.10 ERA and walking more than five batters per nine innings. Whether the complete lack of control was a continuing trend or just due to rust/injuries. But, either way, the price on Kimbrel should be the cheapest in years, and if you're waiting on saves, he's as good an option to take a chance on as anyone.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Few expected Colome to hold the closer role for the White Sox all season, but he did, totaling 30 saves in the process. His numbers were solid, though his FIP and xFIP were significantly higher than his ERA. The White Sox have big plans for the season so, if they're in contention, don't be surprised if they make a move for a more established reliever. But, in the meantime, Colome should provide plenty of saves in the first half of the season.
