News 
 Craig Kimbrel allowed two runs on three hits while striking out two across 2/3 of an inning in Sunday's Cactus League game against the Diamondbacks.
Brad Camara
Sun, Mar 8th
Angels manager Joe Maddon told reporters that it's a "safe bet" to expect Hansel Robles to be the team's closer to start the 2020 season.

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
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
 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
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.
