Mark Melancon continues his solid spring Tuesday

Mark Melancon allowed two hits and recorded two strikeouts over two innings Tuesday against the Astros.

Fantasy Impact

Melancon has been lights-out so far this spring. He and Will Smith should get the late-inning work this year.

Mark Melancon has another solid outing Saturday

Mark Melancon struck out one over a solid inning against the Rays.

Fantasy Impact

Melancon has had a terrific spring so far, he seems to be in mid-season form. He and Will Smith will primarily pitch the eighth and ninth innings this year but it's not clear who will get the saves and who will earn the holds.

Fantasy Impact

Melancon and Will Smith will be the primary pitchers for late-inning work this year. Their specific roles have yet to be announced but if your league scores holds and saves, you can't go wrong with either one.

Mark Melancon puts in an inning of work Thursday

Mark Melancon put in an inning of work in Thursday's spring game against the Cardinals, allowing one hit and recording a strikeout.

Fantasy Impact

Mark Melancon to serve as Braves closer still

Multiple media outlets are reporting that Mark Melancon will still serve as Atlanta's closer to begin the year despite the team signing Will Smith on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact

Smith is undoubtedly the superior reliever but the idea is to use him in the highest leverage situations, which don't always come in the ninth inning. Ultimately we expect both relievers to get some saves in 2020, which complicates matters for fantasy.
