Notes 
 New Reds manager David Bell has indicated that Iglesias is "going to pitch in the most important spots in the game," whether it is the ninth inning or earlier. Bell added that "[a] lot of times it's going to be in that closing role." In actuality, that may not be much of a change from past seasons for Iglesias, who has entered in the eighth inning in 43 of his 129 appearances (33 percent) over the last two seasons. He didn't amass more than 30 saves either year, but still finished as a top-12 reliever in standard 5
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
Phillies manager Gabe Kapler refused to commit to a single closer in 2018, and that will reportedly happen again in 2019, even after Philadelphia spent $23 million this offseason to bring in Robertson on a two-year contract. Robertson and Seranthony Dominguez are the two logical candidates to share the closer's role, but further late-inning shenanigans simply can't be ruled out from Kapler.
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
 Reds manager David Bell said he wants to use Iglesias when a high-leverage situation arises rather than limiting his best reliever to the ninth. He could serve a role reminiscent to Josh Hader, which makes the southpaw unlikely to record another 30 saves. Yet he can still contribute if scattering some saves and wins with a high strikeout tally and low ERA over 70-75 frames. Move him down the rankings in standard-scoring leagues, but don't dismiss him entirely.
Andrew Gould - FantasyPros
Robertson, the owner of a 2.88 ERA and 2.81 FIP, has posted a K/9 of 10.4 or higher in each of his 11 MLB seasons. In most leagues, it's not the end of the world if he isn't Philadelphia's full-time closer, the likely outcome given Gabe Kapler's diversified ninth-inning usage last season. He should at least be in line for some saves alongside Seranthony Dominguez and Hector Neris, making him an intriguing speculative pick once the sturdier choices (there aren't many) fall off the board.
Andrew Gould - FantasyPros
 Iglesias has been one of the better closers over the past two seasons with 58 saves and 172 Ks, but the Reds have been suggesting that he might not be the every day closer this year. The Ks and ratios would still be good enough to own even if he didn't get any saves, but this undoubtedly causes a hit in his overall fantasy value.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
It was easy to forget how great Robertson is since he only managed 19 saves over the past two seasons. He has racked up 88 Ks per season and excellent ratios over the last 8 years, however. With plenty of save opportunities in store, we could see him return to being a top 10 closer this year.
