Seattle Mariners reliever Hunter Strickland has been placed on the 60-day IL with a Grade 2 lat strain. Strickland does not currently have a timeline for his recovery, and placing him on the 60-day IL opens up a spot on the 40-man roster for the recently-acquired right-hander Connor Sadzeck.

Notes 
 The Marlins likely won't win 70 games, but even so, there will be saves to be found on the roster and Steckenrider is the early favorite to get the job done. How long the role stays his is anyone's guess, but saves are saves so add him late if you are desperate.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Strickland recorded two saves before any other MLB team could win a game. Guess he's the 2019 fantasy MVP, right? Not quite, but this is a case that demands swift attention, as the Tokyo games confirmed his status as Seattle's closer. He also started 2018 strong in the same role for San Francisco before winding up with a 3.97 ERA and 1.41 WHIP, so don't get too carried away.
Andrew Gould - FantasyPros
  You might not love Strickland's pure stuff or his sky-high WHIP, but he is one of the few closers who you can get late that isn't going to face any competition for the job. If you are in need for saves, don't hesitate to plug your nose and add Strickland.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
  The Mariners are in the midst of a complete rebuild, but one under-the-radar move they made this offseason was signing Hunter Strickland away from the Giants on a one-year deal. Strickland took a step backward last year while also suffering a broken hand, but he posted some solid numbers the previous three years. Mariners manager Scott Servais has indicated that the team may not have a "set closer," but Seattle may have an incentive to settle on Strickland as the closer to inflate his trade value. As such, Strickland could be a decent late-round option for saves, even though the chance he's eventually traded to a contender is fairly high.
