Kela is an above-average major league reliever and he'll start the year as the Pittsburgh closer. But the Pirates should be awful and he's a free agent at the end of the year. Banking on more than 15-20 saves for the season would be overly optimistic.

Keone Kela yet to see the field at Pirates’ summer camp

Keone Kela has yet to see the field at summer camp for undisclosed reasons, per Pirates’ manager Derek Shelton.

Fantasy Impact

Kela is expected to open the season as the Pirates’ closer, but hasn’t participated in spring training 2.0. It is unclear at the time when Kela will take the field and join his teammates. Fantasy owners should continue to monitor the situation. The 29-year-old owned a 2.12 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and a 33:11 K:BB across 29 2/3 innings in 2019.
