If you've been a subscriber here at Fantasy Alarm, you've seen the Fantasy Baseball Closer Grid before. If you're new, it's very simple. We not only list who the closer is for each MLB team, but we then go another two-deep into the bullpen to let you know who would be next in line to accrue saves should there be an injury or a change, as well as which relief pitchers you may want to target if your league scores for holds. This isn't about how the teams' depth charts read always, so keep that in mind. Sometimes the heir-apparent is an obvious one, but in many cases, it is not. we look for things like skill-set, contact rates, pitch-command, pitch-mix, how many lefties are in the bullpen, who has worked as a closer before, and who has experience in high-leverage situations among other things.


GREEN will be those with strong talent, abundant opportunities, and a high level of job security. The tier below will be in YELLOW followed by ORANGE and lastly RED to indicate who may have the job right now but could lose it with one bad hiccup.
