 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.

I mean, the Rockies aren't going to allow Wade Davis to close games, are they?
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
  Oberg turned in another stellar year despite pitching in Colorado, and took over for Wade Davis as the closer by the end of the year. Davis will enter the 2020 season as the closer, but given his performance last year, his leash is going to be fairly short. Oberg makes one of the better handcuffs to own, though it's more about his opportunity and less about his ratios.
