Notes 
 Giles is the perfect candidate for your first closer if you don't want to invest heavily into the top guys. He has no competition in the pen in Toronto.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
If Neris is the guy in Philly, he'll finish a lot higher than the 153rd player.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Giles may have had the quietest 1.87 ERA and 1.00 WHIP in the history of baseball. Add to that a a 14.09/9 strikeout rate and Giles was one of the best relievers in baseball in 2019. He'll be a free agent after this year so it seems unlikely he holds down the closer's role in Toronto all year. But he'll certainly help your overall numbers in the first half of the season at least.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Neris rebounded from a spotty 2018 to become an incredibly reliable reliever last year and tally 28 saves for the Phillies. His stuff isn't overpowering and his control is mediocre, but his split-finger is elite and he leaned into it more than ever. The resulting increase in ground balls helped stabilize Neris' numbers last year and should again make him a reliable, if unexciting, option in the bullpen in 2020.
