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
Although Greene had a rough 2018 season, he comes into this year as the expected closer for Detroit. Joe Jimenez might take over before long, but as long as Greene continues to offer saves and strikeouts, he deserves a roster spot.
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.
