Notes 
 Although you may expect Herrera to be the closer battle in Chicago, some reports are suggesting that Colome has the upper-hand in the competition. This will be one to watch in spring training to see how it plays out. If Colome gets the job, he would be a top 25 closer.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Although Baltimore may only win 50 games, Givens is one of the closers who has no competition for saves on his team. Even 25 save opportunities is better than what someone like Josh Hader or Zach Britton will get. Pair that with another 80 strikeouts and respectable ratios and we are looking at a top 30 fantasy reliever.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 Colome is reportedly the favorite to see most of the saves chances, but Kelvin Herrera and Nate Jones could also factor into the ninth inning at times. Colome isn't quite the dominant pitcher he appeared to be back in 2016, but he got his strikeout rate back over a batter per inning last season and he has tended to slightly outperform his peripherals. Perhaps most importantly, he's shown he can handle the ninth inning. It's not a lock that he'll run away with the job or hold it all season, but he could be a sneaky source of saves with serviceable ratios.
