  Mychal Givens's shot at the closer role is in doubt after it has been reported that Hunter Harvey will get a look as the Orioles' closer.

Notes 
 UrĂ­as is the biggest faller for me, as he was a Top 100 player in my initial rankings. It's hard to trust the Dodgers to send Urias out there every fifth day for a full workload. It's time to buy in dynasty leagues.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Givens isn't a special pitcher, pitches for a poor team, and isn't guaranteed to be the closer. Even if he were, he's tallied just 20 saves over the last two seasons. There's no reason to draft Givens, and if you're looking for a Baltimore closer, better to take your chance on Hunter Harvey.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
 Urias will begin the year in the Dodgers rotation, so the biggest hurdle to him having major fantasy value this year has been cleared. His ability to miss bats is elite and although he's struggled with control a bit in the majors, he has all the tools to succeed. There's plenty of upside, so if you have a solid base for your pitching staff, don't hesitate to pull the trigger a little early.
