Notes 
 Plenty are suggesting that Blake Parker was brought in to be the closer for Minnesota, but
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Morrow is working his way back from an elbow injury that should cost him the first month of the season. He was very good last season and will earn $9 million this year, so it's certainly possible he regains the closer job even if Pedro Strop is handling it well in his absence. He's a smart DL stash.
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
  It sounds as though Morrow is going to miss the start of the season. That could very well turn into multiple months as we've seen with "minor" pitching injuries many times before. It is a dangerous game to draft based on injury optimism, even if the closer does have considerable upside.
