RP - OAK
Expert NoteView More Notes
If Hendriks' 2019 performance doesn't convince you to wait on closers, nothing will. An afterthought in drafts pitching behind Blake Treinen, Hendriks not only took the closer's role for the A's but also developed into one of the best relievers in the game. A velocity bump made his fastball nearly unhittable and he rarely gave up home runs. He'll be given the chance to repeat his performance, but whether he can is an entirely open question.

Liam Hendriks strikes out the side in Monday appearance
Liam Hendriks pitched one inning against the Cubs Monday night, giving up one hit and striking out three.
Hendriks saved 25 games last year for the A’s striking out 124 over 85 innings. His velocity was up averaging 96.5 on his fastball while sporting a ridiculous 17.7 swinging strike percentage. Hendriks is locked in as the A’s closer and last years numbers suggest a repeat, he makes for a fine option if you choose to use draft capital on a closer.

Closers feel like more reliable investments this season than starting pitchers, many of whom will not see anything close to their usual workloads and face greater-than-usual injury risk as they attempt to ramp up their arm strength during an abbreviated "Spring Training."
