News 
 Mets reliever Edwin Diaz did not a allow a baserunner or strike out a batter over the course of a scoreless inning in Wednesday's win over the St. Louis Cardinals.

Notes 
 Diaz's season was an unmitigated disaster. While his strikeout rate remained strong, his ERA ballooned to 5.59, his home run rate rose to comical levels, and his control waned. By the end of the season, he had ceded save opportunities to Seth Lugo and was relegated to mopup duty. Diaz's slider went from being unhittable in 2018 (.129 BAA) to getting crushed in 2019 (.297 BAA). He'll enter 2020 as the closer for the Mets, and reliever volatility is well-known, so don't be surprised to see Diaz rebound big-time in 2020. But just don't go into your season banking on it.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Rogers didn't have the Twins' closer role at the outset of the season, but he proved himself as Minnesota's best reliever pretty quickly. He built on his strong gains in 2018, further upping his strikeout rate and lowering his walk rate. He likely won't see all of the save chances this year for the Twins, but he should lead the way in opportunities. That, along with his strong overall numbers, makes him a reliever to target in fantasy.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
 Diaz is clearly an exceptional talent as demonstrated by his insane 2018 campaign, but we are talking about a 10th round pick who didn't even manage to finish among the top 50 relievers last season. Sure, the 5.59 ERA and 1.38 WHIP are likely to come down but will it happen long enough to hold onto the closer job all year?
