Brandon Kintzler tosses a scoreless inning Wednesday

Marlins reliever Brandon Kintzler did not allow a baserunner over an inning of work on Wednesday, earning his third hold of the Spring.

Fantasy Impact

Kintzler is expected to begin the year as the closer in Miami, though it is not a given that he keeps the job for the entire season. With the rebuilding Marlins likely to sell at the trade deadline, Kintzler could be a midseason trade candidate. On top of that, the veteran right-hander will have to hold off in-house candidate Ryne Stanek for the job.

Brandon Kintzler expected to close for Marlins

Brandon Kintzler will serve as the Marlins' primary closer, as indicated by manager Don Mattingly on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

Mattingly did not explicitly confirm Kintzler as the team's closer, but his comments made clear that this is the direction the team plans to go. Kintzler has 49 career saves. Ryne Stanek and Drew Steckenrider may be in line for save chances behind Kintzler.

Brandon Kintzler signs one-year deal with the Marlins

Brandon Kintzler has agreed to a one-year, $3.25 million deal with the Marlins.

Fantasy Impact

Kintzler bounced back from a sub-par 2018 season by pitching to a 2.68 ERA and 1.04 WHIP last year with the Cubs. Although he has a 29-save season on his ledger from a few years back, he's tallied only three saves over the past two seasons, and he has just a 6.34/9 career strikeout rate. Nevertheless, given the state of the Marlins' bullpen, Kintzler should be considered one of the leading candidates to close at the moment, and be drafted late if you're in any need of saves.

Brandon Kintzler earns first save Saturday

Brandon Kintzler hit a batter but otherwise turned in a clean inning to pick up the save Saturday against the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact

Craig Kimbrel has not appeared since September 21 when he allowed consecutive homers, so Kintzler was afforded the save opportunity on Saturday night. He has posted a 2.68 ERA and 1.04 WHIP this season.

Brandon Kintzler traded to the Cubs

Brandon Kintzler was traded to the Chicago Cubs Tuesday afternoon. The Nationals will get a Single-A pitcher in return.

Fantasy Impact

Kintzler will head to the Cubs with a 3.59 ERA. He had a really rough start to the season but has worked that ERA down from 18.00 back in April to the 3.59 he has now. He will more than likely be a set-up man for the Cubs.
