Yate led the league in saves last year with 41, and continued to lower his already impressive ERA and WHIP. He has an elite strikeout rate and is outstanding at limiting home runs, which is everything you want in a closer. Josh Hader should be the first reliever taken but Yates should be a close second.

Kirby Yates pitches scoreless inning

Kirby Yates pitched a scoreless fifth inning in Sunday's 6-0 loss to the White Sox.

Fantasy Impact

Yates has only pitched two innings so far in spring training, but hasn't lost a step since leading the league in saves last year. He has yet to allow a hit while walking one and striking out four. He will be the first closer off the board in many leagues in 2020.
