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
The Reds have messed around with Iglesias in the past as far as keeping him in the closer's role, but all signs point to him staying there this year. He's a nice value pick.
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
Iglesias walked fewer and struck out more batters than ever, winding up with 34 saves last year. And yet it always felt like he was on the precipice of losing his job as the closer, particularly in light of his whopping 12 losses. Iglesias is still under control for two more seasons and, so long as he can continue to pitch relatively effectively, should be able to hold down the ninth-inning job in 2020. But there should be at least some trepidation among fantasy owners in light of his ups and downs last year.
