RP - MIA
Expert NoteView More Notes
Bass will likely be in the mix for saves with Yimi Garcia (and possibly Dylan Floro) after he signed a two-year deal with the Marlins. He lacks the typical strikeout stuff of most closers, but he's totaled 12 saves, a 3.54 ERA, and a 0.99 WHIP over the past two years. Bass is an extreme ground ball pitcher (62.3% ground ball rate last year), which is how he's able to survive without big time stuff. But Don Mattingly likely won't name a closer until the end of spring training, so draft Bass late for now, but have plenty of other bullpen options.

Anthony Bass shaping up to be the favorite to close games for Miami
Anthony Bass, who recently signed a two-year, $5 million deal with the Marlins, was brought up "often in discussing the closer role" by Marlins manager Don Mattingly, per Craig Mish of SportsGrid.
Mish stated that Mattingly, after talking up Bass, "then went to Yimi Garcia. Mentioned late(r) options of Dylan Floro & Richard Bleier." It's looking like Bass is the odds on favorite to open the year as the Marlins' closer. He posted a 3.51 ERA, 1.01 WHIP, and 21:9 K/BB ratio over 25 2/3 innings while recording three saves and seven holds for the Jays in 2020.
