The Closers job in the MLB is a rough negotiation. Saving games does not necessarily quantify an awesome reliever or not, but the stat category still remains both played up for fantasy, and something to reference.
For the tops in most of the leagues in 2014, you must have look towards the top clubs 1st.
In Oakland, I think Jim Johnson and Luke Gregerson will take turns saving contests. The same thing may happen in Los Angeles – where Brian Wilson and Kenley Jansen may also both see time as the clubs Closer.
The Cardinals may use multiple players for the position, and I am not of the thought process that the Orioles and Bucs will have enough opportunities to nail games down.
The Texas Rangers and Boston Red Sox could end up using several different Relievers to take down the 9th inning.
A glaring omission from this list will 3 time reigning NL Saves Leader Craig Kimbrel. I think the will end up with low 40’s in Saves this year.
So who is left?
5. Grant Balfour, TB – 45
4. Sergio Romo, SF – 46
3. Rafael Soriano, WSH – 48
2. Joe Nathan, DET – 49
1. Greg Holland, KC – 52
