Notes 
 If Neris is the guy in Philly, he'll finish a lot higher than the 153rd player.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Workman is another guy who seems like a safe bet as an RP 2, but let's not totally ignore Matt Barnes.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Neris rebounded from a spotty 2018 to become an incredibly reliable reliever last year and tally 28 saves for the Phillies. His stuff isn't overpowering and his control is mediocre, but his split-finger is elite and he leaned into it more than ever. The resulting increase in ground balls helped stabilize Neris' numbers last year and should again make him a reliable, if unexciting, option in the bullpen in 2020.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Workman was never the guy for the Red Sox . . . until one day he just was. When he finally locked down the closer's role, he was fantastic, striking out batters at will and pitching to a 1.88 ERA. His WHIP hovered near 1.00 despite the fact that he walked more than 5.5 batters per nine innings, a feat which he's unlikely to duplicate. In short, while Workman will close for the Red Sox, he'll need to improve his control in order to hold the job for the whole year.
