RHP Ryan Helsley is an option being considered for the Cardinals' closer role.
When asked about the closer role, Cardinals' GM John Mozeliak's first response was Ryan Helsley. Jordan Hicks will start the season on the injured list, leaving an open competition for the closer role. Gio Gallegos and Carlos Martinez were also brought up as possible candidates to close. Helsley pitched well in 2019, owning a 2.95 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 32:12 K:BB across 36 2/3 innings.
