Notes 
 Brandon Morrow is technically the Cubs' closer, but it seems as though he will miss at least a month to open the season. That makes Strop the likely replacement and for one of the best teams in baseball. Don't be surprised if Morrow misses longer or even losses the job to Strop while he is on the IL.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Minter was supposed to be in the heat of the competition for saves in Atlanta, and while that may happen down the road, an injury setback for him has handed the job over to Vizcaino. Unless you play in a deeper league, this should make Minter undraftable, but worth keeping an eye on in free agency.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 Strop is currently penciled in to serve as the Cubs' closer, at least until Brandon Morrow returns from an elbow injury. With a 2.61 ERA, 1.03 WHIP, and 10.1 K/9 over the last five seasons, Strop has proven to be a fantasy asset in many formats even when he isn't closing games. He could well be a top-10 closer for however long he's allowed to handle the job. That uncertainty puts a bit of a damper on Strop's draft stock, but he is still a solid selection in the middle rounds of drafts.
