Mon, Mar 9th
  Mychal Givens's shot at the closer role is in doubt after it has been reported that Hunter Harvey will get a look as the Orioles' closer.

Notes 
 The Astros are going to rely on Urquidy with Gerrit Cole's departure. I like James more, but Urquidy is safer.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Givens isn't a special pitcher, pitches for a poor team, and isn't guaranteed to be the closer. Even if he were, he's tallied just 20 saves over the last two seasons. There's no reason to draft Givens, and if you're looking for a Baltimore closer, better to take your chance on Hunter Harvey.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
 Urquidy seemingly has the fourth starter's role locked down, and he offers and intriguing pitch mix, with an above-average fastball and changeup, with a decent slider.It's unlikely that the soon to be 25-year-old will develop into a consistent fantasy starter given his inconsistency, but he certainly has enough upside, as he showed in the playoffs, to warrant rostering in all fantasy leagues.
