Notes 
 An intriguing option when healthy, Rodriguez took another step forward with a 3.82 ERA, 3.65 FIP, and 10.13 K/9 in 2018. Good luck getting a full season out of the lefty. Knee and ankle injuries contained him to 129.2 frames, so he has yet to make 25 starts for more than 137.1 frames in a single season. He flaunted a high ceiling by mixing in fewer four-seamers in favor of a cutter, and he has reportedly spent the offseason working on his slider with help from Chris Sale and Pedro Martinez. Drafters must prepare to make up the lost innings elsewhere, but he's nevertheless the type of high-strikeout hurler worth targeting after locking down sturdier rotation anchors.
Andrew Gould - FantasyPros
Phillies manager Gabe Kapler refused to commit to a single closer in 2018, and that will reportedly happen again in 2019, even after Philadelphia spent $23 million this offseason to bring in Robertson on a two-year contract. Robertson and Seranthony Dominguez are the two logical candidates to share the closer's role, but further late-inning shenanigans simply can't be ruled out from Kapler.
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
  Robertson, the owner of a 2.88 ERA and 2.81 FIP, has posted a K/9 of 10.4 or higher in each of his 11 MLB seasons. In most leagues, it's not the end of the world if he isn't Philadelphia's full-time closer, the likely outcome given Gabe Kapler's diversified ninth-inning usage last season. He should at least be in line for some saves alongside Seranthony Dominguez and Hector Neris, making him an intriguing speculative pick once the sturdier choices (there aren't many) fall off the board.
Andrew Gould - FantasyPros
  It was easy to forget how great Robertson is since he only managed 19 saves over the past two seasons. He has racked up 88 Ks per season and excellent ratios over the last 8 years, however. With plenty of save opportunities in store, we could see him return to being a top 10 closer this year.
