Notes 
 Gallegos is a perfect guy to take as your RP 2 late in drafts. The job should be his.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Read Smith, Will. Too many options in the Braves bullpen for Melancon to hold down the job for long.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 There's no denying Gallegos' talent, and if he gets the job as the Cardinals' closer, he has the legitimate upside to be a top-five closer if everything goes right. Unfortunately, we're a long way away from there, as the St. Louis bullpen situation is a giant question mark at the moment given Carlos Martinez and Alex Reyes. Draft Gallegos for the ratios and hope for more, but don't yet think you've got a solid closer.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Despite Melancon plainly not being the best reliever on his team, he'll likely enter the 2020 season as the Braves' closer. Melancon still has decent control, but the days of being a lockdown option are long gone. Draft him as a back-end closer, and understand that Will Smith will be looking over his shoulder all year.
