Pressly had his usual solid season, but got the benefit of closing for the Astros after Roberto Osuna's injury. His numbers fell off a bit from the previous two years (his 1.33 WHIP was particularly out of character), but he will almost certainly rebound from the .365 BABIP he allowed. He's slated to again be the Astros' closer, and as such, should provide plenty of saves while giving fantasy managers positive value in ratios. That makes him one of the few reliable closers worth drafting at more than a late-round price.

Ryan Pressly leader to be closer

Astros manager Dusty Baker said Ryan Pressly is “the leader” to the be closer.

Fantasy Impact

Pressly converted 12-of-16 save opportunities in 2020 and is “the leader” to close for the Astros in 2021. “Steve Cishek, Pedro Baez, and Joe Smith and couple of the lefties are capable,” Baker added. Pressly was effective last season, owning a 3.43 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and a 29:7 K:BB across 21 innings. The 32-year-old RHP is currently 13th among all relievers in the latest expert consensus draft rankings for 2021.
