Notes 
 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
Betances is merely a closer in waiting, but besides Josh Hader, the best in the game. He is a sure bet for 90+ Ks, with upside ranging to nearly 130. Likewise, his ratios will be terrific each year and you can even rely on a handful of wins and saves too.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
  Betances could work his way into save chances if something happens to Aroldis Chapman. But even if Chapman remains healthy and effective, Betances is worth owning in leagues where non-closing relievers are rostered as a source of elite strikeouts and ratios.
