Notes 
 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
The only thing that would hurt Hand's value this year is if the Indians trade him away.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 He's not the dominant force of yesteryear, but he's still a safe saves source in the shortened season.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Hand didn't have a bad year by any means, but there were two major areas of decline. The first was a cratering of his ground ball rate, and the second was that batters simply hit his fastball much, much better than in previous years. Hand is a reliever, which means volatility, and his strikeout rate remains well above-average. But with just a club option left on his deal, he could be a candidate to be dealt if the Indians struggle out of the gate.
