Yes, that is Timmy Trumpet you're hearing as Edwin Diaz enters the chat. He may have just brought his Statcast page to contract negotiations before signing his five-year, $102 million deal to return to New York. The 28-year-old was in the 100th percentile in xBA, K%, Whiff%, xSLG, and xERA/xOBA, which is exactly what you are looking for from a fantasy closer while racking up 32 saves. His xFIP was a ridiculous 1.04, and he stranded 90.4% of runners on base. While chances are good Diaz will not repeat these numbers in 2023, there is nothing to suggest that he won't return as an elite closer option with job security on a team that should win plenty of games. He'll probably cost you a second-round pick, but there isn't much downside if you're willing to pay for saves.

Edwin Diaz signs five-year, $102 million deal with New York Mets
Edwin Diaz and the New York Mets are in agreement on a five-year, $102 million deal that includes an opt-out, a full no-trade clause and a sixth-year option.
Just like that, the offseason is underway as the top closer in baseball from this season will remain a Met for years to come. Diaz is now the richest reliever in baseball history coming off a season where he collected 32 saves and 118 strikeouts in 62 innings, all while holding a 1.31 ERA. Expect him to continue his ninth-inning role with New York.
