Notes 
  Reports were suggesting that Vizcaino was in a closer battle with A.J. Minter, but now that Minter is banged up, it seems as though Vizcaino will open the season as the closer for a playoff contending team. That should make him worthwhile to draft, but that doesn't exactly mean he will hang onto the job for long if he slips up.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
  Braves manager Brian Snitker recently suggested that the team could play matchups in the eighth and ninth innings, which means that both the right-handed Vizcaino and left-handed A.J. Minter could see plenty of save opportunities in 2019. Most major league hitters are right-handed, so Vizcaino is the favorite to again lead Atlanta in saves when all is said and done. His walk rate is higher than you'd like, but he's outperformed his peripherals for most of his career, so it wouldn't be shocking if he managed another sub-3.00 ERA.
