Notes 
 Holland re-signed with the Royals after an outstanding season, during which he put up an ERA under 2.00 and a WHIP below 1.00 for the first time since 2014. He'll almost certainly begin the year as the closer, but he's unlikely to stay in the role for the entire season. Even if he's not dealt to a contender by the trade deadline, his walk rate is surely to be closer to the 5.3/9 innings that he put up his previous four seasons, rather than the 2.22 he managed last year. Draft Holland late as someone who can chip in saves early, but be prepared to hit the waiver wire later in the year.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Leclerc is dealing with elbow soreness and is now expected to miss "extended time." It's just another in the long list of things that has derailed Leclerc's career of late, after he looked like he would be the Rangers' closer for years to come after he emerged from obscurity in 2018 to become a dominant reliever and then signed a lengthy deal. After is stellar season, his walk-rate reverted to its pre-2018 numbers quickly, he lost the closer's role, and then missed almost all of last year with a shoulder injury that required surgery. With the elbow soreness, there's just no reason to draft him this year, and you can pick him up off the waiver wire when and if he returns and is named the closer.
