Notes 
 Yarbrough is underrated in fantasy, but it may not be the best year to be invested in him with only 60 games.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Pagán should lead the Padres in holds.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Yarbrough relied on an opener plenty of times last year, and it helped his win potential, as he tallied 11 despite making just 14 starts. He greatly improved his control last year, leading to just a 1.00 WHIP, but his lack of strikeout upside and mediocre ERA should keep him as an option only in deeper mixed or AL-only leagues.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Pagan had a dynamic season with the Rays, racking up 20 saves and offering excellent ratios. But a move to the Padres takes him out of the closer's role behind Kirby Yates. He's still ownable for his pitching numbers and as a handcuff to Yates, but don't expect many saves absent an injury.
