 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 
 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
Pressly has developed into one of the best relievers in baseball. His strikeout rate is pristine, he rarely walks batters, and he limits the damage as well as any pitcher. He won't see saves absent an injury to Roberto Osuna, but his number make him worth owning regardless.
