“Craig’s going to be our closer,” said Ross. Despite his struggles with the Cubs, he is expected to open up the season as the team’s closer. “But I do think there are a lot of guys in that bullpen that are going to help our success,” Ross added. The 32-year-old converted 2-of-3 save opportunities while posting a 5.28 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and a 28:12 K:BB across 15 1/3 innings. Kimbrel is currently 20th among all relief pitchers in the latest expert consensus draft rankings.
