21 Yimi Garcia (MIA - RP) 253 23 70 30.8 4.8 342.0 +89.0
Garcia looks like the closer now in Miami after locking down an easy save against the Mets on April 10th following Anthony Bass's struggles. Don Mattingly may still allow others to figure in, but Garcia is the reliever to roster in Miami.

63 Rafael Montero (SEA - RP) DFA 285 39 72 57.7 9.0 169.0 -116.0
 
64 Paul Fry (BAL - RP) 336 38 88 57.8 15.5    
 
65 Chad Green (NYY - SP,RP) 335 30 106 59.2 27.1 360.0 +25.0
 
66 Alex Colome (MIN - RP) 353 57 99 71.4 12.8 160.0 -193.0
Colome has gotten the early save calls for the Twins, and it appears as if he'll be the lead dog in the ninth inning for Minnesota. We know Rocco Baldelli doesn't like to have a single set closer, but expect Colome to see the majority of the save chances going forward.
67 Gregory Soto (DET - SP,RP) 366 34 112 71.7 25.7 358.0 -8.0
 
68 Joe Ross (WSH - SP,RP) IL10 429 29 125 68.8 29.6 541.0 +112.0

72 Stefan Crichton (ARI - RP) MiLB 443 48 113 82.7 16.4 370.0 -73.0
 
73 Adam Ottavino (BOS - RP) 465 53 99 74.3 14.0 326.0 -139.0
 
74 Jose Alvarado (PHI - RP) 434 45 74 61.2 10.6 483.0 +49.0
 
75 Jose Cisnero (DET - RP) 425 30 61 43.3 11.3 770.0 +345.0
 
76 Archie Bradley (PHI - RP) 390 59 101 77.8 12.9 256.0 -134.0
 
77 Kris Bubic (KC - RP,SP) 381 22 115 65.4 30.1 536.0 +155.0
 
78 Rafael Dolis (TOR - RP) 391 31 109 79.0 19.4 409.0 +18.0
 
79 Trevor May (NYM - RP)   35 102 80.2 20.4 357.0  
 
80 Cole Sulser (BAL - RP) 410 29 89 67.8 16.7    
 
81 Emilio Pagan (SD - RP) 372 54 109 81.2 13.5 260.0 -112.0
 
82 Jordan Hicks (STL - RP) IL60 316 58 111 82.5 15.4 200.0 -116.0
 
83 Cesar Valdez (BAL - RP) 408 47 78 70.6 8.7 744.0 +336.0
 
84 Anthony Bass (MIA - RP) 371 61 124 83.7 21.3 276.0 -95.0
To the extent Bass was the official "closer" in Miami, he isn't any longer after struggling in his first few outings. He doesn't really have "closer stuff" to begin with despite successfully holding the ninth-inning role at times,, so he'll likely only find his way back to being the stopper if there are prolonged struggles by Yimi Garcia and others.
85 Ross Stripling (TOR - SP,RP) 368 29 123 72.2 35.4 466.0 +98.0
 
86 Drew Pomeranz (SD - SP,RP) 388 61 106 84.7 10.8 210.0 -178.0
