Notes 
 One of my more underrated SP. I see 200ks in a 162 season but I don't think he has that next, elite gear - 240+ and so while I love owning shares of Berrios, I can only rank him so high. Great park, winning team, reliable and durable. Very safe SP and should be easy to own and worth reaching for if you need to.
Chris Mitchell - FantasyData
If you want to invest in a closer but don't want one of the top-priced guys, you could do far worse than Roberto Osuna, who is my No. 1 reliever. He's done that thing that managers love where he's "proven himself" able to handle the late-inning work, and he pitches for one of the best teams in the league, which means the saves should be there. This is a great spot to dip your toes into the saves category.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Is Jose Berrios overrated a little bit every year? Yeah, definitely. Berrios can be inconsistent from start to start, and you want more when you watch him pitch and he's on. That said, while he may not be an ace, he's one hell of an SP2 to have on your roster. You want guys who are going to give you 200 innings and a good strikeout rate. Berrios checks those boxes, even with the occasional bad start.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Osuna may not be quite the pitcher he was in his absolute prime, but he's not far off. He has yet to have a season in the majors with a WHIP above 1.00, and his strikeout rate has rebounded to above-average, if not elite, levels. He has immense job security on an excellent team and should once again provide all the numbers you could want from a closer. Draft him with confidence.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
 Berrios reached 200 innings but didn't really take the step forward that most fantasy owners had hoped for. His strikeout rate dropped, his WHIP increased, and batters made better contact. Still, Berrios was a pitcher who fantasy owners could start each and every time out, contributed well in wins, and rarely walked batters. When you add it all up, Berrios remains a starter that fantasy owners should covet, but perhaps temper expectations until he shows that he's ready to take that next step.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Still just 25 years old, a top-four option for saves in fantasy
Brendan Tuma - BettingPros
 Has yet to develop into his ace potential but is a solid SP3 for now
