Givens isn't a special pitcher, pitches for a poor team, and isn't guaranteed to be the closer. Even if he were, he's tallied just 20 saves over the last two seasons. There's no reason to draft Givens, and if you're looking for a Baltimore closer, better to take your chance on Hunter Harvey.

Mychal Givens has another poor outing Wednesday

Mychal Givens trailed starter Tom Eshelman in Wednesday's exhibition against the Blue Jays, serving up a two-run homer to Randal Grichuk. He also walked one and struck out one in the outing.

Fantasy Impact

Givens continues his rough spring, now sporting a 10.38 ERA. Manager Brandon Hyde believes that there is competition for the closer's job, and Givens is not helping matters. For what it is worth, Hunter Harvey also had a poor outing Wednesday, giving up a two-run homer as well. Continue to monitor this fluid situation, but it would be wise to look for saves elsewhere.

2020 Fantasy Baseball Closer Report: Early July photo
