Notes 
 Smith doesn't have much competition for saves at this point, but he hasn't exactly been the most durable reliever. More importantly, he will be a valuable trade chip mid-season as a lefty setup man, so take the saves while you can with Smith, but know they might not stick around all year.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Although you may expect Herrera to be the closer battle in Chicago, some reports are suggesting that Colome has the upper-hand in the competition. This will be one to watch in spring training to see how it plays out. If Colome gets the job, he would be a top 25 closer.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 Smith and Mark Melancon will reportedly enter spring training as the top two candidates to serve as the Giants' closer in 2019. While Smith has clearly done far more to deserve the job, the Giants' desire to save face on Melancon's bloated $62 million contract may make him the slight favorite. After posting a strong 2.55 ERA and 0.98 WHIP in the role last season, Smith could be a very good fantasy closer if he's able to win the job.
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
Colome is reportedly the favorite to see most of the saves chances, but Kelvin Herrera and Nate Jones could also factor into the ninth inning at times. Colome isn't quite the dominant pitcher he appeared to be back in 2016, but he got his strikeout rate back over a batter per inning last season and he has tended to slightly outperform his peripherals. Perhaps most importantly, he's shown he can handle the ninth inning. It's not a lock that he'll run away with the job or hold it all season, but he could be a sneaky source of saves with serviceable ratios.
