Notes 
 If you want to invest in a closer but don't want one of the top-priced guys, you could do far worse than Roberto Osuna, who is my No. 1 reliever. He's done that thing that managers love where he's "proven himself" able to handle the late-inning work, and he pitches for one of the best teams in the league, which means the saves should be there. This is a great spot to dip your toes into the saves category.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Rogers seems to have the trust of the Twins, and with them being the favorites in the AL Central, expect a ton of save opportunities.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Osuna may not be quite the pitcher he was in his absolute prime, but he's not far off. He has yet to have a season in the majors with a WHIP above 1.00, and his strikeout rate has rebounded to above-average, if not elite, levels. He has immense job security on an excellent team and should once again provide all the numbers you could want from a closer. Draft him with confidence.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Rogers didn't have the Twins' closer role at the outset of the season, but he proved himself as Minnesota's best reliever pretty quickly. He built on his strong gains in 2018, further upping his strikeout rate and lowering his walk rate. He likely won't see all of the save chances this year for the Twins, but he should lead the way in opportunities. That, along with his strong overall numbers, makes him a reliever to target in fantasy.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
 Still just 25 years old, a top-four option for saves in fantasy
