Notes 
 Doolittle doesn't have a tight grasp on the closer's gig, but people seem to be overreacting slightly about him not getting the first crack at saves.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Gallegos is a perfect guy to take as your RP 2 late in drafts. The job should be his.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Doolittle should likely close for the Nationals again in 2020, though Daniel Hudson's emergence in the late- and post-season last year could throw a wrench in Davey Martinez's plans. More concerning is Doolittle's dip in performance, as his ERA and WHIP were by far the worst of his career. A free agent next year, Doolittle's job security should be minimal, so don't target him as a closer in your fantasy drafts.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
There's no denying Gallegos' talent, and if he gets the job as the Cardinals' closer, he has the legitimate upside to be a top-five closer if everything goes right. Unfortunately, we're a long way away from there, as the St. Louis bullpen situation is a giant question mark at the moment given Carlos Martinez and Alex Reyes. Draft Gallegos for the ratios and hope for more, but don't yet think you've got a solid closer.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
 Doolittle came on strong during the playoffs and we've seen him dominate before but the full picture of his 2019 season was one of mediocrity. Should he return to that rate, he may be the first closer to lose his job with Daniel Hudson closely lurking behind.
