Notes 
 You don't pay up for closers. You just don't. The repeatability year to year just isn't there at the position. Kirby Yates was great last season, but every year, we push up those standouts from a year before at the position, only to have them crush our souls. There's a reason that relievers have short shelf lives of being useful - especially closers. The Padres built one hell of a bullpen, and with the pressure on the front office to win this season, they won't hesitate to pull Yates from the role quickly. Don't pay up for saves, folks. Just don't.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Tyler Glasnow had Pittsburgh Pirates fans everywhere cursing the name of Neal Huntington more than usual with his 2019 performance. Well, at least early on, because then the injury happened to Glasnow, which is where the concern always is with him. He has top 5 pitcher potential in the league, and questioning how he will hold up over the course of the season is fair, too, even in a shortened year. He's an ideal back-end SP2 with unlimited ceiling.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Yate led the league in saves last year with 41, and continued to lower his already impressive ERA and WHIP. He has an elite strikeout rate and is outstanding at limiting home runs, which is everything you want in a closer. Josh Hader should be the first reliever taken but Yates should be a close second.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Glasnow was limited to just 60 innings in 2019, but they were pretty glorious ones! His control, which had plagued him since coming to the majors, improved significantly, and his WHIP dropped to an impressive 0.89. He should be fully recovered from his forearm injury heading into the season and has the raw stuff to be a fantasy ace if he can avoid injury. There's risk with Glasnow, but it is worth taking.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
 One of just four closers I feel super safe about (Hader, Chapman, Osuna)
Brendan Tuma - BettingPros
A potential innings limit worries me after missing most of 2019, but he should be highly effective when healthy.
Michael Petropoulos - BRoto Fantasy
  Has never thrown 160 innings in a season before. Should provide ace-level production for however long he's healthy for
