  Kenley Jansen has retired all nine batters he's faced this spring, and has struck out six. Jansen is throwing fewer cutters this spring and is instead focusing on mixing his fastball and slider.

Notes 
 In a regular season, Hader would be the first reliever taken. However, with just 60 games this year and a less-than-good rotation, the Brewers could deploy Hader in a swing-man role in the seventh and eighth inning, and turn to Corey Knebel in the ninth.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Jansen finally reported to camp on Sunday, July 12, and revealed that he was delayed because he had tested positive for COVID-19. Dave Roberts stated that he expected Jansen to be ready for the regular season, which means he can be drafted as a top-10 closer.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
 Hader throws his fastball about 83 percent of the time and batters just can't hit it. They bat .167 against with a miniscule .275 wOBA and there's just no reason to expect that to change. Thus, his nearly 50 percent strikeout rate is likely here to stay, and that makes Hader the top reliever to draft in fantasy, even if his occasional multi-inning role means he won't get every save chance.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
He's not the dominant force of yesteryear, but he's still a safe saves source in the shortened season.
