Notes 
 He's probably going to be traded, but he'll give you cheap saves until then.

Who else will the Tigers turn to?
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Kela is an above-average major league reliever and he'll start the year as the Pittsburgh closer. But the Pirates should be awful and he's a free agent at the end of the year. Banking on more than 15-20 saves for the season would be overly optimistic.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Although Jimenez's numbers weren't pretty in 2019, he actually performed fairly well once the Tigers turned over the closer role to him. He'll never be a top-tier closer, particularly given that Detroit is unlikely to compete, but considering he's under team control for several more seasons, he should be given every chance to hold the job all year.
