Jose Alvarado has not been named the closer to start camp. Manager Kevin Cash said there is "No urgency" to name a closer. He is in favor of flexibility and lots of options. (Marc Topkin on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact:

Many want to pencil in Alvarado as the closer. Do not fall for that trap. He is a lefty and should see save situations when lefties are due up in the ninth. The door is wide open for anyone to take control over the right handed role. Alvarado will still be a good value after 200 overall because of his ratios and will chip in 10 plus saves but don't expect more than 20.
