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
As of July 11th, Kela has not reported to camp. It's unclear if he is dealing with COVID-19 or when he is planning to report, if at all. Kela is an above-average major league reliever and will start the year as the Pittsburgh closer if healthy. But for now, drop him down your draft board a few spots.
Dan Harris - 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
He's probably going to be traded, but he'll give you cheap saves until then.
Michael Waterloo - 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.
